Seven Legends honoured a true Legend on Sunday 18th SeptemberAs part of The LOA Rendezvous in Cowes, seven Legend Yachts, coincidently representing seven decades of steadfast service by the late Queen, sailed line astern to Osborne Bay.
In front of the private beach of Royal Residence Osborne House, a favourite of Queen Victoria, the Legends sailed to the West, along the beach line.
At the given signal by the Commodore, Legends turned to starboard to face their Ensigns, suitably adorned with black cravats, in the direction of the House. At a further signal ensigns were then dipped in an act of respect and thanks.
