Breton ladies sculling

Breton ladies sculling

Here’s something you don’t see every day – Breton women in traditional dress engaged in a sculling race. May the best hat win, I say…

I nicked this from Chris Partridge’s excellent weblog Rowing for Pleasure, who got it from Francophile dinghy cruising maven and Dinghy Cruising Association president Roger Barnes.

Video: Moth racing at London’s Welsh Harp, 1957

This is a great film from a piece of water where as a young man my father used to sail. And I just love the cannons!

My thanks to small boat designer and sailor Mik Storer for this one!
