Pageant of Sail, Wivenhoe, 1968

Now online as part of the British Film Institute’s Britain on Film series in association with the East Anglian Film Archive, this little film of a late 60s event including a race organised by the Old Gaffers’ Association is absolutely charming – and includes what I’m sure is a glimpse of Charles Stock helming Shoal Waters back from the race. See what well known  boats you can spot…

My thanks to Tom Cunliffe for sending me this one.
