Matthew Atkin’s photos of the boats of Cheng Chau, Hong Kong, October 2014

Here’s another collection of my brother Matthew Atkin’s photographs, this time from Cheng Chau, a dumb-bell shaped island 10km to the south west of Hong Kong Island. Thanks Matt!

Hollowshore, late October 2014

Some photos marking the end of the 2014 cruising season. The dreamy boat is Simon Harding’s Cygnet of London. I gather she was guilt in 1906 by the Burgoine brothers of Kingston on Thames to a design by her first owner, a G Chalmers.

I have some shots of her sailing over the weekend when I can find my mislaid camera…

PS – I’ve now found my camera (I left it on the boat!) and added my shots of Cygnet of London under sail, and a few of local wildlife for good measure.

The little white-hulled boat from Paglesham is just the cutest thing, isn’t she?
