A New Zealand friend Russ, used to make fun of the English yachting press for running articles like "I went out to check my mooring ". Given that he's sailed around the world and some of the worst weather imaginable, I guess it was a fair point.
Anyway to celebrate what might not be the finest tradition of English yachting journalism here's a bloke checking his mooring.
On a more practical note, apparently PBO will be running a feature on the new cordless hose, perfect for washing down the deck when there's no marina hose available.
