Boscastle Regatta

Skippers and mates and rowing club eights
All messin’ about on the river
Capstans and quays where you tie up with ease
All messin’ about on the river
Outboards and inboards and dinghys you sail
The first thing you learn is the right way to bale
In a one man canoe you’re both skipper and crew
Messin’ about on the river

    I feel a Viking moment coming on, Robin. 🙂 🙂 Where’s me tin hat?

      What a grand idea Jo – the scene would be much enhanced by the addition of tin hats 🙂

      I’m not so sure Janet – the start line was out at sea – I would be exhausted before the race even got going 😉

    Love those wooden boats.

    They are called Pilot Gigs apparently – something I have only just found out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornish_pilot_gig
    You live and learn 🙂
