John’s Jottings Feb 21

A message from the Chairman of the Wanderer Class Owners Association UK Well, we finally made it into 2021!

Somerset In Devon

Family cruising in Salcombe Harbour and creeks By Leonie Johnson Leonie and Bea sailing in the Bag – Neil Delmas So welcome was our two week post-lockdown break in a cottage in Frogmore; a small village at the head of one of the longer creaks, or ‘ria’ to give it it’s proper name.  I rose to the Chair’s challenge and risked getting my iPhone out whilst onboard Somerset to film our adventures – boat number 1800, and the third Wanderer I’ve had the great privilege of sailing in Salcombe. You can watch the short video (my first!) edited using iMovie on the Wanderer Association’s Facebook page.  These are some of the adventures that didn’t quite make the cut…..
