Joe Croll, who runs the New Yellow Dog Jazz Club in Chandler’s Ford, and Dave Stradwick’s Sussex Jazz Kings each year promote a Jazz Boat cruise from Southampton to Cowes on the Isle of Wight and back.  This year (2017) it was on Sunday 16 July and several members of Gosport Jazz Club joined it.  The Sussex Jazz Kings perform whilst the boat is sailing to and from Cowes and there is also a brolly parade on arrival in Cowes.  Here are a selection of photos from the 2017 cruise:
