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!

(As usual on this weblog, photos remain the copyright of the photographer, and these remain mine!)

Sailing on the Swale, last weekend

On the Swale, last weekend. The winds were light, but it was very pleasant and some of my favourite local boats (and one or two I didn’t know) were out and strutting their stuff ahead of the Swale Match this coming weekend. Aside from the sailing barge Orinoco, there was Cygnet, Privateer of Boston, Bird of Dawning and a Finesse

And then we had one of those North Kent skies that Turner loved so much…
