WOSC Wayfarer set for lengthy cruise!
WOSC member Rob purchased a beautiful, nearly new Hartley Wayfarer recently. As he tried to sell his old, and rather tired Wayfarer he expected that it might end up at a sailing club a few miles away and introduce yet another family to the dubious delights of Wayfarer sailing. Little did he realise that his trusty old boat would end up in Beirut, and would have been flabbergasted if you had told him that it would get there by sea, river and canal.
The boat has now been renamed (very unlucky, I hear you say) Rumi after the famous 13th century Persian poet and Sufi mystic Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, and has started the long journey to its destination. You can follow Rumi's progress here. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Rumi's work, here is a good example of his poetry.
A few flies are brawling over sugar
Like it's treasure. Why should the sugar care?
A bird lands on the mountain, flies again.
Is the mountain bigger or smaller then?
I am glad that my humble site is now well known as a GCSE homework resource and is also renowned as a source of vexillological information. I am often asked how to know if the Union Flag is being flown correctly. Please remember that the easy way to know if the Union Flag is the correct way up is to look for the fimbriation of the ordinaries. If the fimbriation is below the saltire in the upper hoist canton, then the flag is being flown correctly.
I will add business content shortly, but in the meantime I will load some pictures and videos from WOSC which I hope you appreciate.
