I will keep my eye out for Blue Macaw Bruce and give you a shout.

A ship with a proper hull colour if I may say  Wink

Karen,

It's sounding more and more like you have been converted. I won't mention any names, but there was at least one other confession on Saturday.

Hi Bruce,
I thought Blue Macaw remarkably handsome, had a good look sailing by in my dinghy, Green hull tan sails, Whimp by name.
See, sailies can admire stinkies. Evil Grin

Hi everyone,

so sorry to have missed you all. Thanks so much for the photos and stories - what a bunch!

or those who will be around, look out for us between 8th and 13th on a Lullaby Class Sailing boat from Hunters...
The two Westies are the usual clue to the Dannyboy clan..

Sorry for not posting much before now - don't seem to have had a min since getting home at 2.30 this morning!

Now then, seems the saily lesson is hot gossip eh?! It was magnificent, despite the rain, and I have to say  a big thanks to Robin (Speleologist) for the initiation!

I would love to take Gary (sorry we only had a few mins chit chat) and Pauline up on their kind offers in the future, so.... you can assume from that, I was rather taken with the experience! Even though I was feeling a bit guilty for leaving me "list" and labels with Mike!

Loughrigg's future is secure though (till we get a bigger version eventually), but apart from enjoying the whole saily thing, I also realised something - when I have been disappointed in the past with sailies out on the river who don't ackonwledge us or tell us which way they want us to go, it may just be because they are too busy concentrating on controlling their yacht! To know what you are doing, where the yacht is going, and communicate with passing cruisers is probably for the well practiced!

One confession - I did have a weekend or two in the Lakes in the 80's doing a bit of canoeing, but only in calm waters. Would never have dared do a river trip cos it looks soooo scary - not least because I am not a strong swimmer and have no bottle for being under water! It freaks me out  Blush

So you can see why I'm a stinkie! But I will HAVE to go out in a yacht again because it was fantastic and I want to know more about how to do it!

Right, confessions over! Who'd have thought it!  Wink

Perry, I can't do anything other than agree about the hull colour, and I note that you are completely impartial in the matter (not!). Pauline, I saw you sailing by in your delightful Whimp (great name!). Thanks for the kind remarks.

It's good to know that some of the action was going on at the staithe end of the broad - especially sailies practising their craft whilst tacking round me.

Karen, I agree with what you say about sailing boats - it would make life much easier if we powerboat people (I refuse to be called a stinkie) were given clear directions. I've been sailing for 40 years, but I still can't read the mind of a sailing boat skipper as to whether he wants me to go astern before he/she's reached the bank or wait until after the tack.
