I think regular readers will have gathered that most things about boats and yachts don’t really ‘float my boat’ but every now and then one catches my eye and to be frank you’d have to be blindfolded to miss the elegance and beauty of this yacht, that was sailing out of Salcombe harbour this morning.
I don’t know what she is called, but we do know she shared a mooring in the harbour with ‘Sceptre’ who raced in the Americas Cup 1958
Over the years various bits of boats and even a whole pram dinghy* have cruised into our kitchen at home, seeking warmth, ‘so the varnish will dry better’ during one of Mr Uphilldowndale’s boat repair and restoration projects (of which there are many) but I doubt any of the bits from this boat would fit in our kitchen, even if they came in through the window(true story).
*Pram dinghy? Here is one we sold earlier
(Joe still has a passion for tartan trousers, ten years on, but not for boats).
