Admiral Sailing Day

Here's a few pics from the Fleet Sailing Day yesterday on Port Phillip, Melbourne, Australia - after the liquid-ice rain cleared away.

These two you know already:




From left to right: "Oosterschelde", Couta boat "Loama", topsail schooner "Enterprize" and Cruising Eight "Marie Louise III".


Gives one a pretty good idea of scale.

Funny you should say that.. You'll get no wheel kick from the helm of Europa - on account of the need for an autopilot, the steering's hydraulic.

Like the ruddy-great bow-thruster it's the way of the modern world (and survey regulations), I'm afraid.

I'd agree with that.

.. and given that the bunt-lines and clew-lines were usually completely cast off their respective pins when setting sail, it wasn't all that uncommon to find some bunny had belayed them back down again on the wrong pin.

Now I'm sure I'm always remember the words "spaghetti run" - and not with fondness.

If they were caught doing anything serious, the general policy was to change the watches in order that they would barely see each other ever. If they were just caught making out, we teased the **** out of them.

They seldom do - it's assumed to be the guys fault.
