So there we were sitting on the veranda of the Baltic Bay Restaurant, having a farewell drink after a successful week sailing and training for the practical exam ( all three passed with flying colours, 2 ladies, 1 man ) I looked over the parking area, where a very big and expensive mobile home had parked, hiding a yacht from our view. All that I could see was the mast stretching skywards. Turning to the newbies I said, “ that mobo’s got a nice mast”, The question came straight away, “ Why does he have a mast on it “ It took a while before my answer, “ that’s so he can set sail to cruise down the auotobahn and save petrol “ was considered as anything but the truth. Skippers word is law!
To the ships of our seas and the women of our land,
may the first be well capt'nd and the second well manned. www.sail-english.com
