Dan and Alan lead the cruise cautiously into the mooring known affectionately as "Herring's hole". But what awaits them there?
Why, it's a load of boats and skippers and whatnot. Mooring up for lunch in Herring's hole can be a little tricky (stop sniggering at the back please), but with a little imaginative fender positioning, anything is possible.
The crew of Woodcut, out on Barton Broad, sport their yellow Pikachu-like trophy. How did they win it? Probably by being the coolest boat on the cruise, we reckon (although the title of 'most awesome' was claimed by another boat...) Josh and Fi helm, Jake and Joe look on while the two 'nuts sail past in the background.
Ah, here we are. Probably the most awesome boat on the cruise [editor retains final say on all captions], featuring probably the most awesome crew on the cruise. From the left, James (er, looking weird), Al (with a mouth full of drink) and mate Chris on the helm (apparently in pain). Well, apparently not the most awesome photo, perhaps.
A closeup of the Woodcut crew. Mate Fi (helm), crew Joe and Jake, and skipper Josh. Kneeless jeans and caps appear to be in this season.
The crew of Walnut sail close to the camera, in order to show off Ali's fine hat (proving that Woodcut isn't the only cool boat on the cruise). From the left: Dave, Joel, Ali, someone we can't make out, and Mike.
Mooncat (also known as Pikachu) where he belonged, on the Hustler. This year we had daily challenges of various kinds (complete various sailing manouvers, write a log or shanty, decorate your boat, tie the most knots in a piece of string) and the winner each day got to sport the yellow mascot the next.
The leaders of the cruise (Tris, Alan and Savage) sit on the rafted Mallards boats at Ranworth during lunch. Wait, something's wrong here... oh no, it's okay, Chris has food.
Ali pulls a face on the roof of Hustler, on the Ranworth raft. Or he's just fallen on something. Either way there's something odd about his sleeves.
First-time cook Sarah holds a captive audience enthralled as she recounts the events that led her to disprove Newton's third law of motion in only her second year at university. Dave, Jono and Joel sit in quiet awe around her.
