The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

These photos are great! Retiring in Palm Beach sounds like a dream. Wish I could do something like that-but not yet- still have all these years ahead of me. Great post!

my father joined RYC in 1956 and owned a lighting #1482. I can recall the tree in the yard and a sand box that the kids played in and I (want) to think I can see my father's dark hulled lighting in one of the pictures. I remember the Triton very well. I recall that the owner raced it very hard and i believe it was stored in Lockwoods in the winter at a time when lockwoods had very few sailboats.
