Coral sets sail.

A very civilized affair. First a little stroll to go and see Elliot, the giant fanman. He is 18m tall and made of 4200 Coca Cola crates. Then a coffee at Bascule.

 The sailing was sublime. An outrageous feeling of bonhomie amongst the people. Twinkly smiles and laughter. Orders from the Skipper in his fine Scottish brogue. Top speed: 10 knots, including large amounts of sea spray and scary angles.

 I came home feeling windswept, salty and hungry. And now for the first time I understand how people get the sea in their blood and become sailors.
