Firstly it's a nice picture of Wayfarer with asymmetric up on the Thames.
Secondly to honour O'Docker's detective work.
Thirdly because it comes from a sailing club I'm not a member of, and that is a bit of a relief.
The thing is I'm not a very active member of either the sailing or kayaking clubs I'm a member of. The emails come popping into my in-tray at regular intervals, telling of successful trips here, plans for voyagers there, and always the call for help.
And there are people out there who are club regulars who are always out on the water, not just sailing and kayaking but training and safety boats, cleaning out the boat shed and organising the racing.
I have friends who row who are in the gym what looks like all the time and then out on the water a couple of times per weekend. While I'm impressed by their dedication that doesn't feel right for me.
Apart from the fact that its cold and dark there, work sends me to travelling at irregular intervals, there are relatives to visit and entertain, nephews, nieces and godsons with birthday's to entertain, and I made a resolution to do more non-blog related writing.
And, oh yes, I have a blog to update, a blog about the sailing and kayaking I'm not doing. Hmmm.... something not right about that sentence.......
Though on reflection I've decided that maybe I'm actually the perfect club member, as I pay my dues but don't wear out any club boats.
That's my story, and for this evening at least I'm sticking to it.
