For the third time this year North Harrow Lodge have been fortunate to have articles published in Freemasonry Today, the United Grand Lodge’s magazine. The latest piece shows how a few of our members got together for a bit of team building, fun and frollocking whilst taking the opportunity of promoting Freemasonry in general and the Province of Middlesex in particular by flying our newly designed flag as we sailed along the south coast for four days last July.

Although almost half the crew were novices, of which 3 had never sailed before, never mind eating, sleeping and living in a confined space aboard a 46′ yacht. However, we did have a number of experienced sailors in the Lodge crew that had sailed the Channel and Bro Luther-Davies who had actually sailed the Atlantic, so we were in good hands and confidently managed to negotiate the tides, winds and my cooking (the latter was the most dangerous) in the Solent whilst under the eagle eyes and direction of our skipper and current WM who delivered us all safely back to Hamble marina in one piece. Next year’s sailing is already at the planning stage and we have doubled the amount of Lodge members that what to join us, so I think we will need a bigger boat.!!!!!
