Solent-Sail

“There is a classic yacht regatta happening at Cowes in the Isle of Wight, can you cover it for an article?”
¬† “Sure, when is it?”
“Next week”
“Err, ok”

Having lived next to the sea all my life sailing was not really something that floated my boat although I would readily admit to being mesmerised when spotting a classic wooden yacht in the Solent. Presented with a chance to get close to such  magnificent and beautiful yachts was not an opportunity to decline. Whatever the weather and conditions I was going to be there.

Thank you to staff and friends at the Panerai
