1989-08 Abersoch Dart 18 Nationals


On the way to Abersoch in North Wales

On the way to Abersoch in North Wales

Time off from sailing at the Dart 18 Nationals. Celia goes hunting in the rock pools.

Visiting Portmeirion built by Clough Williams-Ellis.

Another view of Portmeiron - Famous for the filming of the classic television series 'The Prisoner'.

More of Portmeiron. Clough Williams-Ellis also designed in 1923 the Memorial Hall at Bishops Stortford where I went to school

A surreal place!

Another shot of a most amazing place.

The Hotel at Portmeiron.

I am a name not a number! Celia poses outside No 7's (Patrick McGoohan) front door.

Almost time to go!

On the beach at the Dart 18 National championships at Abersoch. Robert Fletcher prowling around waiting to get out and race.

Oh dear!

Celia with ear rings. A present from her brother Justin.

Looking down from the cliff at the fleet on the beach. A lot of boats not rigged so not much sign of wind.

Another shot of the fleet on the beach.

The clubhouse with signs from the sponsor and Robert Fletcher's boat with its temporary number 5. All his boats have a sail number ending in 73.

Colin Rudd a fellow Snettisham member and his then girlfriend Anne, now his wife, wonder along the sand.

More time off from the racing due to the wind. Celia goes clambering around the hills.

I think this is Aberdaron. There was an excellent pub on the sea wall that served very good pub grub.

More of Aberdaron

The tiny Chapel at Aberdaron

Looking out to sea over the chapel. Aberdaron is the jumping off point for Bardsey Island. Bardsey was an important religous centre founded by King Einon of Lleyn and St Cadfan in the sixth century. It even gets a mention in the Brother Cadfael's books by Ellis Peters. A must in anyones reading list.

More time off from the sailing. We only just managed to get enough races for a championship. Here the Porthmadog end of the Bleanau Ffestinog railway.

On the way up the mountain

With a winding track the Engine was often in view

At one of the stations on route where the trains can pass each other

Full frontal of an Engine

The guard on our train. Most of the staff were volunteers. This chap had an excellent voice and I think was a teacher in his day job.

Celia concentrating on eating.

Back again in Porthmadog at the begining of the line.

Another shot of the engine!
