Willow of Harty, Cygnet with her sails blazing with light… and the Red Sands Fort

Spotted in the Swale this weekend: the Baltic ketch Willow of Harty (sorry, Google couldn’t find much about her online) and the beautiful yawl Cygnet of London, which was built in 1906 Burgoyne brothers of Kingston on Thames.

And a shot of the Red Sands fort as I romped past in a F4 and blazing sunshine. As so often there were nearly no other boats around at this time of year.

It’s probably Greta.

On the Swale, early August 2016

A small collection of photos from a weekend on the Swale. The sailing barge in the dawn shot is Orinico, and I have to say that dawn very much made up for having to be up at 3am to catch the tide!
