Regular readers may recall that in the entry for Mon 05 March 2018
we had a little item about ensigns. |
We mentioned that after Glenn and Gregor had shlepped off back to the UK Mike was going to take the boat on to a few other islands, accompanied by some august pals who were classy enough to be entitled to fly the white ensign - not the bog-standard red duster that we are used to.
Well, word reaches us back in the UK that this duly happened. And here is the evidence to prove the upgrade. Personally, I prefer the entry-level red job, but the white one does look clean doesn't it? It is also a bit bigger; not quite spinnaker sized but maybe in the right wind it could give a knot or two more speed.
This place where the boat is parked looks like St Barth; note that OS and the bloke next door are both flying a little French courtesy flag. That's all folks on flags.
