Broads Week, Post 05

Shortly after leaving St Benet's, we come to Thurne Mouth, at which point we turn sharply right and carry on downstream towards Stokesby and Yarmouth. Because we drive on the right on these rivers, I'm approaching this corner fairly close to the bank.
Of course, the local sailing club are racing, and they all want to cut this corner as close as they possibly can. And steam (or in this case, diesel) gives way to sail.
So I stop dead five inches from the bank, and smile at all those helmspeople as they pass. Some of them even smiled back.
Some didn't.
