Uni: A Student Booze Cruise, Plymouth - 2nd May 1986

One of Plymouth's great bonuses is its coastal location and in particular the harbour (otherwise known asn Plymouth Sound) and the River Tamar. This makes the ideal venue for booze cruises, which are frequently held on the sightseeing boats that would ply their trade on summer days with the chant 'See the dockyard and the warships!'. There's not much more to it than stocking a boat with booze and packing in a bunch of piss-head students...
