WIND, OH WHERE FOR ART THO?

Wind, where ar’t though dear wind, cameth the call

A little whisp, a breeze, a blustery blow, or even a squall,

the start, then thirty minutes crawled on, oh so slowly by and

WIND, OH WHERE FOR ART THO?

Wind, where ar’t though dear wind, cameth the call

A little whisp, a breeze, a blustery blow, or even a squall,

the start, then thirty minutes crawled on, oh so slowly by and

Eddie finally slipped quietly across the line, with a sigh.

 

Another start, another limp sail marathon would ensue,

but Dutchy Holland was back, with his boat of blue,

Smoko!  Came the loud and the collective call

and there followed a resounding cheer, ‘quietly’ voiced by all.

 

Wind, oh glorious wind arrived and thus the course was changed

and ever after on the day, saw leaders re-arranged,

as boats were tangled almost mangled, and nervous voices strangled,

tiring thumbs worked overtime, as our wild tacking beasts were wrangled,

‘last race’ was called by PRO Scott and a sigh of collective relief was heard,

Ian came first with Duthcy placed second and Mike,

well he came third.

Ian FORSTER
