Hate to see a good thread languishing

Although I've posted several favourite pics previously on this thread I have finally managed to extort a sensibly sized version of this particular gem from the talented Nick.

Clickable.

I think there are a few new posters since this thread was last aired and to these I commend a reading of the warning in the OP.

I got some new ones the other day. Taken last back end on the TSA Windermere cruise by the same bloke who took the "doing 6.3 knots with a reef white knuckle ride" ones.

Met up with Silkie last week & he persuaded me to post a picture of our Orla, taken by a Canadian boat heading down the sound of Mull, we later swapped pictures, these are the only pictures I have of Orla sailing, was really chuffed to get them.

She's a real beauty. Bob Perry's designs deserve to be better known on this side of the Atlantic.

Put the CC2011 in your diary if you want to get some more pics of Orla under sail. Next year it will probably be pre-cruise drinkies on Thursday April 28th and returning to base on Monday May 2nd. Bring your guitar.

Here's two of mine:

Is the gasometer in view?

Funny that. There's the Medway littered with abandoned brickworks and power stations plus the container ports and I've missed them.
The names too big - my blunders will be remembered. Maybe I should have another name on one of the dodgers then the shameful incidents can be shared. Wished I hadn't chucked the tatty old blue dodgers with the old name on now.
