Ranelagh Christmas Party 2015

Ranelagh Sailing Club Christmas Dinner 2015

The Ranelagh Christmas dinner 2015 was a rather splendid affair. Wendy and Nick Price along with Sonia and Thomas Stolper arrived early to set up the room beautifully. As a slight variation on previous years, 2015 saw the introduction of after dinner entertainment in the form of karaoke.

    Christopher Edwards was very sporting indeed and kicked off proceedings with the Carly Simon classic "Nobody Does it Better" There were many remarkable performances throughout the evening, but there were some highlights:
  • Fran Giffords performance of Dolly Parton's Jolene
  • Sarah and Richard Jarvis's performance of Rod Stewart's Sailing
  • Nicholas and Benedicte Long performance Henry the VIII I am (I am)
  • Guillaume and AurĂ©lie de Riberolles, Pauline, Jeanne and Marine, Garance performance of California Dreamin'
  • Pauline, Jeanne and Marine, Garance performance of Abbas Waterloo
  • Guillaume and Cliodhna Mouscadet performance of You're the One that I want
  • Maury Shenk's performance of John Denver's Country Road

However without question the absolute star of the evening was Pierre Dunoyer de Segonzac and his performance of Charles Aznavour's "She". It is a beautiful song and Pierre sung it beautifully with great heart to his wife Capucine. Despite all the silliness of the evening, it was very moving.
