The Dragon Experience

My first experience of The Yacht Club was ordering a pint and being formally asked to remove my cap whilst in the bar, but hey, that was forty years ago!

This year I was asked by Michael Cope and Graham Price to be part of the crew on Raissa. She is a beautiful and complicated lady, she has sails, no engine and demands three men to look after her!  I was very pleased to accept their invitation and I signed up for the full season on the foredeck.  I confirmed with Michael that the foredeck was at the front of the boat and that the ‘helm’ was at the back, he politely pointed out that I would not be required on this part of the boat. 

My first day’s sailing was wearing shorts in light winds and glorious sunshine. The next, I was fully togged up in very windy conditions and getting slapped in the face by too many waves. 

At times it was difficult to know who was ‘The Captain’ and I found myself trying to put the pole up and take it down at the same time.  All in all a great experience, even with two Captains!  I am pleased to report that The Dragon fleet’s competitive racing spirt is alive and well.

At the end of each sailing day it was always great to retire to the bar, without my cap of course!
