Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 28th July, 2012)
Wigan Sailing Club
Happy days! I learned to sail in an Enterprise! Nice nostalgic picture.
Lovely photo Harry. Nice to see people getting out and enjoying themselves.
Nice photo Harry. Looks like the Flash. Are you a sailor or just an interested bystander? What is the Enterprise Open please?
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.
Browsing further on Internet Explorer, there`s a difference in the spelling of the name of this flash. Scotsmans Flash is quoted too.
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.
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.
i can count me and there are 4 little boats in this picture . oh and its full of fish too.
Looks a bit cold and choppy to me......Think i`d rather sit in the park in the sunshine.Nice picture though.
I bet things like these sailing boats look marvelous if they are captured on a video.
Mick if you want to see a video go to sailing Scotmans flash utube Enterprise Open.
Harry, you`ve fallen into Mick the Impersonator`s trap. The real Mick has made umpteen video`s which are on You Tube.
