The Medusa Trust

Change of Command, April 2013

After 45 years as Medusa's skipper, Mike Boyce decided it was time to retire and command was handed to Alan Watson who has been First Officer for 15 years.

Without a lifetimes dedication from Mike (and a lifetimes tolerance from Pam his wife) Medusa would not be around today.  To wish Mike well, the crew organised a send off which involved a great deal of Rum.

Medusa stars at Jubilee Pageant June 2012

Medusa made the 500 mile round trip to the Thames to take part in the Jubilee pageant.  The trip round via Eastbourne, Ramsgate, Sheerness was perfect.  On the day coming down from the overnight mooring at Putney was horrible with cold heavy rain but the event was amazing. Passage back via Sheerness and Eastbourne was memorable for nasty weather off Beachy Head.
