Red Dane
Red_Dane_1s.jpg

Hi,

I sail all year round, we only have Red Dane lifted out every second year, we have a drying grid at the yacht club so we can scrub her down below the water line. The winter provides us with some great sailing conditions (as we have more easterlies which keep the water on the Clyde flat), you just have to keep a weather-eye open, and then its just normally day sails, not too long a passage.

Red Dane was registered as 'Vogel Gryff' in Basel Switzerland to a Swiss subject called Hans Rudi Bolliger. In the saloon there is a small brass plate with a Swiss registry number. She was re-registered in Britain in 1974 to Sir Ian McGeoch, K.S.B., D.S.O., D.S.C. Vice Admiral. It never amazes me how small our world is, Sir Ian was born in Helensburgh, Scotland, 6 miles from my previous home in Balloch, Loch Lomond.

I write a fair amount of poetry, but not regular, I normally write huge amounts in the one period then my creative thoughts run dry.

Slainte,
Callum
