HMS Ranger visits Littlehampton Harbour

Sunday, 23rd June 2013 – Littlehampton Waterfront Festival.

Despite the gloomy, windy and sometimes sunny weather, Littlehampton’s Waterfront Festival¬† went ahead as planned thanks to the dedication and commitment of those involved including, Littlehampton Harbour Master, Billy Johnson, and his staff, the RNLI and Mr David Coppin who all worked tirelessly to ensure whatever the weather, the day was a huge success.

More pictures of the day to follow in a separate post, but this one is dedicated to HMS Ranger who made Sunday such a special day for everyone allowing the public to board her and see her inside.

She left the harbour this morning on the High Tide.
