I assembled this a few years ago because even I forget some of the boats and events I sailed. Still fond memories; and still making more.
Some years ago, I bought at auction two volumes pictured here, “Burnets Own Times” 1838. Opening the front cover I found a do not take label. I contacted the RYS librarian concerning these tombs. The response was one wondering how it could be that I might have possession of these books. A tone I initially interpreted as accusatory . I recovered from this thought and in 2005 at the finish of the Trans-atlantic race co-hosted by the Royal Yacht Squadron , I returned the books to the Club.
