This is a lovely, rather romantic piece of work! My thanks to reader Don Gray!

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.
