At least you made it that far down the video. I hadn't realised Witch Way was there, sorry I could have got some great shots. What a superb place to boat from.

I will be honest and say i did skip through most of it as sailing isn't my cup of tea. Only the best marina will do for witch way ;)

Excellent video Ian, thankyou for sharing.

I have to say even after my early years racing dinghies with my father, I no longer have much interest in yachting, but having seen the laid back cruising it offers I think I could be tempted once again.

Thanks Andy. In fact handling a 45 which is about 3ft wider than the 39 is much the same. A Moody 32 on the other hand is so much livelier as are Lasers and the Fireflies I used to race.

I must say I did enjoy the change and if I were wealthy enough I would have a yacht, however I'm not ready for a complete change so would have both.
I think I'm still a mobo person though. :D
