New sails for Faramir

We had the pleasure of welcoming two special visitors aboard Faramir last Wednesday. Cirdan’s founder, the Rev. Canon Bill Broad donated a new mainsail and No2 jib and officially handed them over to Faramir’s skipper Ed Humphries and long term Cirdan volunteer, Ann Lee. Along with a few friends and supporters, Bill was accompanied by Cirdan Ambassador, actor Patrick Malahide – recently in Game of Thrones and Indian Summers.  After the sail hand over, Patrick and Bill went on to look around Cirdan’s other vessels still in winter refit, Duet in Bradwell and Queen Galadriel in dry dock in Maldon.
