River Exe Cruise 4/7

You may find it strange for me to show a picture of three people in a small yacht in this series but shortly before we arrived back in Exmouth the pilot blew several sharp bursts on the cruise boats horn and suddenly this yacht shot right across the bow of our boat, I don’t know how they missed us!

Excellent Boat Thursday image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
it's a wonderful little sailboat Brian...

at sea power boats must give way sailing craft...
but i did notice that he is using an outboard motor as well... which explains just how he got across the bow of your tour boat....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I think he turned across the front of our boat almost at the last moment, it is only a narrow channel so he wouldn't have been coming in from the left from quite a distance away.

Peter is right, there are certain rules!!!!!! and stupid idiots are every where.
A wonderful picture though.

I love the sails of this old yacht Brian! Fine capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, they are rather a nice colour.

They were extremely lucky (and fool-hardy), Brian

I always remember from school that "steam gives way to sail" (just shows when I went to school!) The River Lymington is a nightmare for the Isle of Wight ferries with the idiot Hooray Henrys getting in the way (the yachts are under motor power, too).

Steam has to give way to sail - if I remember rightly. Blasts on the horn or otherwise. Lovely old dinghy.

That sounds like a lucky let off Brian.

sailing is hard work
Brian Walbey: As a person who can on;y just about swim sailing has never tempted me.

''Swallows and Amazons''
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard.
I am pleased to see this as I love red sails. Most are white.
Brian Walbey: Yes I quite like the colour of these myself.
A bit of a narrow squeak

It's not as if there isn't must space there. Curious behaviour but they made a good colourful picture

All sounds a bit precarious, I have to say I prefer my feet on dry land Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Being almost a non swimmer I wouldn't get in one of those for anything.

a fine capture of this sailing boat!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
Steam is supposed to give way to sail Brian
Brian Walbey: yes I know Bill but I think he turned across the front of our boat almost at the last moment, it is only a narrow channel so he wouldn't have been coming in from the left from quite a distance away.
fantastic Capture Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky.
