Falmouth Classics 2021

With Justin and Allan aboard we spent last night on the Helford river and enjoyed a jolly supper with Dave and Julie Patuck. Today we sailed the few miles to Falmouth to join a large gathering of Gaffers and other old boats for the Falmouth Classics. There are lots of interesting boats here, old and new friends, and I spoke to someone who remembered an article I wrote for Yachts and Yachting in 1972!

There is real live shanty singing on the marina pontoons to compensate for the problem that the usual shanty festival is virtual this year.
The photo on the right shows Bonita and other boats dressed overall in flags for the occasion.

During all this festivity the harbour is being closely patrolled by police on jet skis, keeping us safe from any threats that may be associated with the G7 meeting, so we are feeling especially well protected.
