I have spent an inordinate amount of time recently scanning a box full of slides. It’s something I have been meaning to do for several years, and once I put my head down and got into the task, I uncovered some real gems – most of which have never been seen by anyone other than myself.

So today enjoy this small and random selection of photos which will hopefully bring back some good memories.

More will follow in the next few days.

A very choppy Durban north-easter created this scene of an L26 revelling in the conditions. I am unable to identify the boat, but think it may be the UCTYC boat?
