This weekend we have been host boat for the annual August Bank Holiday Bradwell Meet of our Owner’s Association. Unfortunately we have an ageing and dwindling membership and each year fewer members sail to the event.

    That happened with a couple of different groups I belonged to. Maybe not quite the same flair…but they are completely gone. And the void has been filled with more writing… (at least for me).

    Times move on and so do people. Younger sailors are not interested in ‘old’ boats, preferring more modern models with perhaps better performance.
