MenoSunday...not so easy...

In keeping with memorial week... a hymn I always enjoyed and, although taken as 'the naval hymn', it does ask for care of all on land, sea and, by extension, the air. It is not necessary to always relate this to the military, of course.  The second video demonstrates that at all times, in all areas, there are courageous and necessary actions in the protection of others.

The expression on the skipper's face at the end as he recalls the rescue...  no words needed really. You can view some still photos taken by the coast guard helicopter as well on THIS PAGE.

May you sail through your week with much less turbulence.


  1. We liked BOTH videos BUTT the first one was so special .... the Decorated Veterans and the choir ... that is very powerful stuffs.

  2. One of my favourite hymns - we sung it at my favourite uncle's funeral, as he was a keen yachtsman.
    Amazing footage of the rescue in that second video.
