In the first Arrival By Sea the newly-weds Sam and Chloe and family came by catamaran from Poole quay to Studland Bay. In perfect conditions the potentially delicate operation of ferrying first the Mothers of the Bride and Groom then the Bridal Couple themselves ashore went without a hitch. The secret was a giant (17’6″) paddleboard but the real genius was to have a couple of deckchairs placed amidships so the dignitaries could sit in some splendour. Then it was up the beach steps to the waiting reception. Couldn’t have gone better.
