On a windy day, Wardley’s Member Simon Ellis had the mad-cap idea of sailing over to the Ship Inn in his Sailfish 18 “Peter Duck”

Blowy return on the Sunday.
John Gorse rightly worried by such a folly, kindly offered the services of his much larger and more able Westerly 25.

The sea state was rough.
Big waves everywhere. The Lancashire coast just a distant memory.
It was a scary couple of days to say the least.
They made it to the Ship Inn, but the weather was nothing like this photo!
