|The excitement of watching this high tech racing|
The Curate manning the safety boat and towing home a boat- thirty years ago (no lifejackets!). Many moons ago The Curate and I met in the muddy backwaters of the Blackwater river - (not in the water but on the water). We raced dinghies - sailing was a hobby in those days - especially on the East coast. We didn't have branded sailing gear - we waded in the mud in old plimsolls and cut off jeans. How times have changed!
Wooden fireballs - some homemade -being prepared for racing (no yachting wellies here!).
|This is what sailing was about - peace .|
