Mostly off topic but....
My first ever sailing was on my Grandpa's Snapdragon 21. I can't really remember much bar not being allowed out of the cockpit
(boo) and how cool it was to go ashore to a deserted beach in the inflatable
. Must have been about 4.
Recently I got hold of his account of taking it from just north of London over to France
for a couple of weeks. Lots of sand bars, tidal streams, big boats in busy channels and a long way in a little boat. They ran aground twice, once when leaving 100 yards from their marina in view of the yacht club bar and once on their return to the UK (in the entrance to Ramsgate marina I think). Guess a twin keeler makes this experience a bit less embarassing in 20foot tidal swings.
Knowing that my Grandma not only agreed to go on this trip but stuck it out changed my perceptions of her
Sometime I'll post the account.
