Day 2 of the Barclays Jersey Boat Show opened with more blue skies and celebrations by the crew of HMS Severn. The ship and its crew are this year's winner of the prestigious Jersey Cup.

The presentation was made to commanding officer, Lt Commander Reynolds by His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey.

General Sir John McColl KCB, CBE, DSO also presented the Governor's Cup to Jersey's Air Training Squadron.
