Dolphins, sextants and some fabulous sailing!

A short trip on a stunning and very unusual classic yacht:

I have described the rig as "Junk", but I don't think it really is. What do you think it is?

Re: An inner city state school in London has bought an old race boat

We did put the main up. You wouldn't have wanted to see it! The trip was very much a shakedown journey, the snagging list is extensive - it includes a full service to the main!

Things you can say about your boat but not your girlfriend?

A classic subject from 'Whose Line is it Anyway':

"She's riding kinda low"

"You can fit a dozen guys down below"

"She's taking on water"

"Nice trim"
