Shadow of Lothian at the Royal Cape Yacht Club

We first met George Faquarson when he arrived at the RCYC on Shadow and as a single hander, this was around September/October 1979, as the slide I have copied is dated October 1979.

The event was The Parmelia Race, it was to recognise the days of the clipper ships that sailed between Great Britain and Australia.

Thats George in the blue oilies, a friend is blowing up a display bottle of scotch whiskey, George is very much a scot!  Thats me in the blue jeans and jacket, with George Dore standing behind me, who is the guy behind George wearing those huge platform shoes though!
