Les and Graham win!

14:56:17 on Sunday 25 May 2014 was the time at which Les and Graham finished the second race of the day.  To the great surprise, nay amazement, of many it was in fact the winning time.  After the RO had checked, rechecked and checked his calculations once again it was announced that Les and Graham were indeed the winners of the race.  In fact the RO spent so much time performing his calculations that the last race was started late.  Read about it here.

Les and Graham unable to sail

Les and Graham were unable to sail on 30 September, which was a beautiful day. 

Les was nursing a nasty face wound received at Stockport when he was bitten by an angry dog.  Graham says there are a lot of dogs in Stockport.

Graham, on the other hand had problems with his plumbing.  Les reckons it's Graham's age!

Check out latest pictures

Check out the latest pictures which include: OK Worlds in Denmark, WOSC 8 Hour Race and Sunday 29 July when Les and Graham flew the flag (and the Police turned up).

For future reference Les, as any vexillologist will tell you, 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.

KPPC

I am also a member of Kirtlington Park Polo Club.

No.  I do not play polo and have not been astride a horse for about 45 years.  I take photographs at the polo grounds at KPPC, which are set in beautiful surroundings in rural Oxfordshire.

Polo is an excellent subject for a photographer.  Beautiful horses, skilful players, a contact sport conducted at 20 mph.  What's not to like?

Check out my photos.  There are thousands of them.  Please let me know if you like them.  You can contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
