“Talking Sailing” From My Archives. Tying Up Rio Race Loose Ends!

By Richard Crockett

Happy new year. Stay safe and keep those masks on when in public.

As there is just one newspaper cutting from 1 January 1971, and it’s of little interest today as it deals with a sales-tax snag one boat owner encountered, I will use the opportunity to use some ‘undated’ cuttings I have not been able to share yet.

There are quite a number worth sharing today, so sit back and enjoy these while easing into the new year.
