what it is
Sportscar is one of our anarchists who is so dedicated to the virtues of the sport and here is yet another example of what he does. He’s got it right…
One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday afternoon is Rescue RIB driving which involves laying marks and keeping an eye on the kids big and small as they compete in their races.
It was a brisk day off Sandringham yesterday with a fresh 20 knot sou’wester blowing and a 2- 2.5 metre sea running which provided for interesting sailing. Some of the kids sailing in those conditions were as young as 7 and they all toughed it out and completed their events, some a little damper than others but all with big smiles.
Driving the RIB allows me to get up close to the action and I snapped off a whole lot of shots yesterday. I have attached a small selection for your interest. Forget the B/S we just saw in Valencia, this is what sailing is really all about!
