    Your boat reminds me of “Swallow” from “Swallows and Amazons” with that red sail. Particularly if kids were using it 🙂

    Neil, The photos in this post are delightful. The smiles on all the faces reflect the joy of simple sailing with friends and family. I look forward to having my 3 year old grandson join me in my Scaffie for some similar fun. Your comment: “Children make everything more fun is certainly true.”
