" I'm stuck in the wrong side of the boat!" Shouts our good friend Judy, Sure enough, there she was, sat down at the stern with the tiller and tiller extension wrapped round her waist.

Earlier, I'd taken a first time sailor Ben out for a spin and we capsized in a big gust. We both legged it to the high side and I flew over the top onto the dagger board. We had a little chat and both got back into the boat with only wet feet and pounding heartbeats. That's what I call 'an introduction to sailing'. Ben is hooked. Now everyone has gone home it all looks so peaceful.It is. Here is Bunny with his afternoon sailing reading.
