    Doug, talking of Locking, there were a couple of great characters from Locking sailing at the Weston Bay Yacht Club in the late forties. Both had open boats rigged with sprit mainsails, a la Thames Barge, plus various other bits of canvas. I remember sailing in my dinghy in company with them one summer morning morning bound for Barry. Dead flat calm clear of the bay. One of the RAF Locking lads, produces a set of bagpipes, stands in his boat playing them as his way of whistling for the wind. It sounded great and I've always thought it was a wonderful setting for the skirl of the pipes. And it worked!

    I went to school in Weston for a few years in the early 60s, while Dad was Station Warrant Officer at RAF Locking (Tech Training School) nearby.
    Cheers, Doug😎

    Great news that Β£850,000 has been raised towards the Waverley's new boilers and it looks as if she will be moved to a shipyard in January for a refit and hopefully back in service in 2020.
    Hope so, I'd love to do the trip from Swansea to Lundy Island again, even if it is pure nostalgia for the days when I could go from Barry to Weston Super Mare on the PS Ravenswood or Glen Usk for 5s.6d. 28 pence in today's money.
