"The Old Gaffers"

Over the weekend it was the Old Gaffers Festival in Yarmouth, here in the West Wight. During these three days of free entertainment, Yarmouth's picturesque harbour was filled with more than 100 visiting traditional sailing, steam and motor vessels, including the cream of the Old Gaffers fleet. On shore there was a huge range of activities, including a French market in the Town Square, keeping the 20,000 plus visitors entertained from morning till night all weekend.

One of the boats attending was Nicole & John's Dutch sailing barge, Wilhelmina. Nicole & John from the Newport Soto Zen Group featured in a previous post about their cycling tour in Australia (there you go, tie-ins to the West Wight & Buddhists). There is a link to their blog "Wilhemina's Crew" in the favourite sites list.
