Thank you Carol for the link, as Dannyboy said a lovely story.

I was pleased to give the Hunter Yard take one of my photographs early this year and I got to have a quick look around their shed.

Like stepping back in time.  If any one has a chance to look around then do so.

Lovely shot Paul, truly beautiful... The Ant I'm guessing, or Meadow Dyke?  Having met small fleets of Hunters' on both rivers over the years, it brings back happy memories of a queue of cruisers patiently waiting for the yachts to tack their way upriver!!

Yes Danny,
Just at the Stalham / Sutton junction.

"happy memories of a queue of cruisers patiently waiting for the yachts to tack their way upriver!!"

I must add " there were actually four yachts, but the forth was caught on a branch of a tree !!!!!"

I did chuckle - inwardly.   Evil Grin  

I may have a cruiser Danny but there is nothing like watching or photographing these under sail, as I'm sure you know.    Truly lovely

As you probably know Paul, I sail mainly... so I'm a fan of course. It is such a great sight, though I can see how it might be frustrating on a day with light airs! Occasionally we have met a small fleet coming in the opposite direction - always great fun slipping past one another...

I have occasionally been a volunteer skipper for the fleet taking out people who are sailing (usually) for the first time. The Fleet is beautifully maintained.
If you want you can join the Friends of the Hunter Fleet. the friends help by raising funds to purchase substantial items for the boats, for example covers.
if you are interested please follow the link below. In return for a modest £10.00 you get 3 or 4 news letters a year

Wow

Paul - have just scrolled through your photos and they are something to be proud of-you should take it up for a living !!!

Particularily like the swan taking off....

Well done.
