Three-cornered hats cause not a little amusement at sailing gatherings. No, I haven’t had a haircut! It’s all tied up. The lifejacket and mobile phone are anachronistic! The photo was taken in the lock of Guilly Glas between the tidal part of the Aulne and the canal that eventually reaches Nantes.
Priests and sailors can both have fun. Here’s a couple of photos I have just received. In the first, I was helping a boat that had capsized by grabbing things that had fallen into the water. The boat itself was helped back up by one of the accompanying motor boats. The lesson is that you never retract your centreboard completely!
Here I was paddling my boat into the second lock (Chateaulin).
