Old fashioned club sailing – in old fashioned dinghies!

Jeff Cole writes to say that his small yacht club runs a vintage wooden dinghy regatta on the weekend of Australia Day, and gave me a link to a video of this year’s event. There are a few local notices, a few speeches and a lot of sailing and talking, notably from Sailfish co-designer Jack Caroll, who Jeff says is still sailing at 84 (he thinks that’s his age anyhow).

I like this – it’s club sailing stuff that many of us will recognise.

Jeff adds that the Sailfish is enjoying a revival.
