Andy Ed, the proud skipper of Wood Violet, performs his skipperly duties to the utmost level of competence. Actually, hang on, isn't he just lounging about?
Visiting antipodean (adj. [from Greek, = having the feet opposite (pod- = foot)]) Hester manages to escape from the Horstead Centre for Easter Sunday to join us out on Horsey Broad. The crew (ie. Jolyon) looks on, obviously impressed.
Natalie takes a moment out from the hectic business of skippering to relax whilst the cruise is moored up at Irstead for the evening.
Some of the boats being forced to quant despite promises of fantastic wind all week. Unless they meant the other kind. Well, we had both, so it worked out alright in the end.
Another shot of some boats. For the slower readers who haven't grasped the concept yet, Kestrels is a sailing holiday. Hence all the boats. And yes, I do only tend to take photos when I get bored which is why a) there aren't a huge number of photos and b) most of them are of quite uninteresting moments. Sorry.
This may LOOK like another potentially dull shot of more boats, but if you were there at the time you may be able to recognise the line of plastic ducks being towed behind Natalie's boat, and the evil glint of intent in Clive's eyes as he bears down on them (well okay, maybe not the last part).
Andy T takes a break from causing utter havoc to adjust some part of a boat while one of the crew attempts to defy gravity behind him. Actually he could be sabotaging the rigging. You never know.
The Kestrels moor up at Horning Church for the evening and pose according to their mood for the camera. Of particular amusement value is the expression on Hayley's face (centre) who appears not to be having a very good time. And she wasn't even on the cruise! (probably explains it then)
You are now privileged to witness a rare sight of skilled sailing and co-operation, as Kestrels attempts to leave moorings at Horning Church. Actually it was more like complete and utter chaos, as I recall. I'm not sure who was responsible but I distinctly heard a French accent shouting out above the other voices...
The 'end of the movie' picture. Two mighty warriors, like in kind, stand at a distance and survey each other. Or maybe it's just two skippers standing on boats. Look, it's not easy writing amusing captions all the time, okay?
