Ian was amazed when he spied sailing boats on the river. Out in this gale? They must be mad! Had a feeling that I might capture a capsize on film and I wasn't disappointed when the only two on the river both got into difficulties. Out came the rescue boat but wasn't needed as the sailers were obviously not novices. After several attempts both boats were upright again.
Tomorrow we go in the Kingfishers dry dock and then the hard work begins. No family to help us this time and Stephen (Dennis and Margaret son) can only make Monday afternoon. Last year he did an excellent job jet washing the hull of both boats. Me thinks this could well be his job this year.
