Sailing Tradition

 Peter & I In The Model Room
In London for a family reunion, I'm staying at the Royal Thames Yacht Club.

The club house is located in Knightsbridge, adjacent to Hyde Park, and is full of history. 

Among the many canon, flags, trophies and paintings that decorate the club, the main bar has a large half-model of Australia II, Alan Bond's revolutionary Americas Cup winner.  

Of course today is the 30th Anniversary of that great victory.

My father Dean, sister Julie and brother Peter have also made the trip, a chance for the Langford clan to visit with distant relatives in England & Wales. Ley has stayed with Crystal Blues in Phuket. Today we move on to Cambridge and beyond.

  1. Nice picture both of you. If am not wrong, Neil is meeting Peter after Peter's 50th B'day in Australia.
