    Can anyone point me in the direction of any matelots who can still do the hornpipe please ? I'm trying to get something together for Trafalgar Night 2007 - I'm guessing that Club Swingers would be the best bet, but does anyone on this forum know of someone still involved with the hornpipe ?

    Thanks in advance

    Yup the hornpipe is taught as part of the Scottish Highland Dance scene so if you can find a teacher near you the jobs a good un.

    If it's for a RN, RNA, semi-official function etc, the best place to contact may be the RN School of PT at HMS Temeraire. The PTI Qualifying Courses usually do a hornpipe demo as part of their passing out routine so the staff may have some useful contacts.

    If it helps, I'll send contact details by PM - just let me know.
