Gladeye x Three

In August this year I sailed aboard Gladeye IV on a week of adventurous training which was both great fun and at times relatively challenging. At the end of the week we were in Cowes and came across the previous Gladeye, now owned by Lance Sergeant Mike Court, formerly Grenadier Guards. We also found, moored up the Medina River a yacht, currently called Joy of Hamble, which in a previous life had also been Gladeye. Mike Court served on all three yachts as the Bosun.

Many generations of Guardsmen have sailed on Gladeye over the years, and the photo here captures her in three guises, from the early 1970s to the present day.
