It’s Christmas at sea for Governor’s Cup yachties

The Governor’s Barge?

Entry details for the 2012 Governor’s Cup yacht race have been flashed up on Facebook. The race starts on 22 December, which means many yachts will arrive in the New Year and competitors will spend Christmas at sea. It all sounds very exciting, but St Helena Online is confused by the image at the top of the race website, which shows a Thames Sailing Barge. These fine old craft were designed to carry cargo down the shallow, muddy creeks of England’s east coast, and don’t have keels. We wouldn’t want to undertake an ocean voyage in one.
