The first charity dinner

On Saturday evening we hosted the first charity dinner aboard Hendrik in aid of the RNLI (Royal Lifeboats). Luckily we had an easy start as it was only a seating for one, Alex, who was helping us out all weekend anyway, and didn’t mind sharing the table with the hired help!

First RNLI charity dinner

The dinner consisted of three courses and drinks, and he was very pleased with the standards of cuisine (the plates were literally licked clean!).
