Racing in an old wooden Glen class keelboat

Racing in an old wooden Glen class keelboat

These old boats are beautifully maintained and raced very keenly all round Strangford lough during the summer months. My earliest races I remember these out racing - they are part of the lough. This one was part of a Club race.

Lol!!! Wonderful fun doing that sort of boat building. I grew up with wooden boats and I always associate the smell of varnish with springtime. Viv

Lovely capture Viv. Do you get many people ask you for photos of them sailing?

Thank you very much Nigel and Unreged. Sometimes I get asked but as we are often racing ourselves it is not possible to get shots of others - so it is only the odd times I get shots. Viv
