18th Century shipping battling a sharp squall

Boleh’s Patron Appointed Governor of Gibraltar

By News

The Boleh Trust is very proud to report that our Patron, Vice Admiral Sir David Steel is to take up the post of Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the British Overseas Territory Gibraltar in June.  Sir David, who generously remains our Patron, will become Her Majesty the Queen’s Representative in the Territory.

The ‘Rock’ is a familiar image and this picture shows 18th Century shipping battling a sharp squall off the town.  These were exactly the conditions Roger and Wendy Angel faced when trying to enter the Mediterranean with Boleh in 1986, calling first at Gibraltar.  We wish our Patron fairer weather and every success in his new Appointment.
