Flying the LSC flag far and wide
Have you flown the LSC defaced ensign or Club burgee anywhere exotic, unusual or notable?
Michael Powell's picture of Tosca is taken in Corfu. She was anchored next to Kiuros in Gouvia bay and then under the walls of Corfu town, in both cases right next to each other. Michael says it's a shame they didn't think to take a picture of the two club boats. Michael also sent in an 'extremely lucky' picture of a dolphin just outside Cesme a few years ago. "I assure you it's not been retouched in any way, I have others!."
Michael and his wife cruise in Greek and Turkish waters throughout the summer (‘Tosca’ is wintering in Killada, on the Eastern Peloponnese). They will be in the Dodecanese and probably the Sporades and Cyclades between May and September this year so look out for them if you're sailing in the area.
David Walker's picture of Kiuros anchored in Fethiye, Turkey is the first in this gallery. Send your photos to email@example.com and we will add to the gallery. David says: "Here’s Kiuros moored in Fethiye Bay, Turkey. No doubt others further afield. The burgee is there atop the mast but a bit thin and sere - have just bought a new one. The owner (me) is in the dinghy."
David Clements sent pictures of Bagheera of Whitby: "I don’t know if the West coast of Ireland counts but here are a couple for you taken in 2009. The first is Bagheera of Whitby anchored off St. Macdara’s Isle, an amazing little rocky island off the Connemara coast which has an ancient stone chapel on it – see the third picture! The second is of Mike Gill at the helm as we raced out of Bantry Bay on a wonderful sail from Glengarriff to near Schull. I’ve also attached a few from the West coast of Scotland in 2006; the first is of Bagheera anchored in first narrows, West Loch Tarbert Jura – a wonderful remote and beautiful anchorage. The second is of Bagheera in another amazing anchorage in Loch Scadabay on the island of Harris in the Outer Hebrides and the third is of her anchored off Eileann Donan Castle in Loch Duich, somewhere I’d always wanted to anchor."
