Experiences Afloat


2001-2010 (c) Rowland Smith


BCYC Cowes Regatta parade of sail, Emily at the mast top, crew below
Eye candy in the crew, parade of sail
Loads of classic yachts, some large, some small, all beautiful in their own way.
Walton on the Naze
Walton frolicks, there's someone under the splash...
Is it a bird?  No, just a small pilot in the bosuns chair
Same pilot, same place (Walton) but this time with a fish caught on a crab line (with bacon bait - must have been hungry)
Night sailing from Cowes to St Vaast, France, 2009
Somewhere in France, 2009 (Wine bottle gives this away)
Inner Dock, Honfleur, France 2009.  Adding colour in a sea of white plastic
Back to blighty, crossing the shipping lanes under power (no wind)
Ramsgate, alarmingly warmer than France.
