Titify'ing

...no boobs, just flags..

On call this weekend so no chance to go sailing - but plenty of opportunity for just sitting in the cockpit drinking a beer in the sun while watching the (sailing) world go by, as I replaced my old, much faded, red ensign..


...with a brand-spanky, bright, new one bought at the Boat Show last month..


Verrrr smart...

  1. Sometime it's just enough to be on the water watching (with liquid refreshments of course).

  2. proper yacht ensign without the pretension of a blue one. Call me daft but I always fly the red duster when I'm out rowing

    1. Bursledon - not daft.. i'm fairly old fashioned about these kind of things.. I have an interest in military history (as the other blog and my nom de plume would probably indicate) and I look at that flag and think of all the brave acts done by brave men while serving on ships flying the same flag - bit of a privilege really...
