Oh, the Glam­our!

Yachting Monthly - - VIEW FROM THE HELM -

Most peo­ple as­sume that the life of a yacht­ing jour­nal­ist is a glam­orous one. Oc­ca­sion­ally, very oc­ca­sion­ally, it is – per­haps a new boat test some­where warm. Far more of­ten, when we leave the key­board, it’s a blus­tery pon­toon to which we head, and this is what we did this month. For your en­light­en­ment, dear reader, we have been out test­ing coastal wa­ter­proofs, find­ing the ones that will re­ally do the job. I can’t deny that chuck­ing wa­ter over each other was a little fun, but we did so me­thod­i­cally and thor­oughly. It wasn’t par­tic­u­larly glam­ourous though.
