In England certainly one of the problems we have is the weather, but regardless when the weather is of the sort which would send us down the pub, many yachtsmen feel compelled to go sailing.
We watched this crew who were fully kitted up against the weather, from the comfort of a warm café over a leisurely breakfast. Another yacht had just cleared the rocky entrance and were heading out into a very lumpy swell, we were very pleased that we only had a short walk back home.
Maybe we’re getting soft or perhaps the magic of having buckets of water tipped down your neck as you cling to a wildly heeled yacht looses its appeal after a while.
