Happy days! I learned to sail in an Enterprise! Nice nostalgic picture.


Comment by Jean Davies on 28th July 2012 at 04:50
Lovely photo Harry. Nice to see people getting out and enjoying themselves.


Comment by Janice on 28th July 2012 at 05:14
Nice photo Harry. Looks like the Flash. Are you a sailor or just an interested bystander? What is the Enterprise Open please?


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th July 2012 at 05:15
I`ve been on their website and it`s Scotman`s Flash.
For classes sailed refer:-

There`s an 11:54 video on :-

When was this taken Harry? Weather conditions look to be ideal.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th July 2012 at 05:34
Browsing further on Internet Explorer, there`s a difference in the spelling of the name of this flash. Scotsmans Flash is quoted too.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th July 2012 at 05:48
There are 282 photo`s taken at the Enterprise Opens in 2011 and 2012 in the Gallery on Wigan Sailing Club`s website.

Oi remember de Leprechaun!Nice pic.


Comment by Harry C. on 28th July 2012 at 09:37
Janice, Yes I am a sailor and have been a member of W.S.C. since the mid 70's, see Ron's photo 19/7/2008.
The Enterprise Open is a race meeting for Enterprise dinghies from other sailing clubs and is held annually. When I'm not sailing I help with official duties so I can get out on the safety boat for close up photos of the racing, this one is the start of a race taken from the start line.
Thanks Ernest for the info, this was taken on Sunday 8/7/2012 you can also see the Laser Open and more on the web site.

Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 28th July 2012 at 15:57
Looks a bit cold and choppy to me......Think i`d rather sit in the park in the sunshine.Nice picture though.


Comment by Mick on 28th July 2012 at 19:00
I bet things like these sailing boats look marvelous if they are captured on a video.


Comment by Harry C. on 29th July 2012 at 08:29
Mick if you want to see a video go to sailing Scotmans flash utube Enterprise Open.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 29th July 2012 at 11:15
Harry, you`ve fallen into Mick the Impersonator`s trap. The real Mick has made umpteen video`s which are on You Tube.
