Hibernating Yacht

I had to park my Land Rover in a nearby industrial estate last night as there was no space in the little cul-de-sac where the flat is. Wandered in there this morning, half expecting to see she’d been clamped or something, but got a nice surprise. No clamp, just a gorgeous yacht parked up on a trailer.

At first glance I thought she was an Ecume De Mer, but there’s not enough overhang at the transom. Whatever she is, those are some very pretty lines. She’s only just turned up so I guess she’s there for the winter.

If she’s yours, please please please take me sailing next summer!

    Apparently she’s been there a while and my girlfriend’s pointed her out to me before now, I just wasn’t listening. Oops…
