…come sailing by.
The essence of summer: Blue skies, the sun sparkling on the sea and yachts on the horizon. We’re back to sunshine – I thought that was it for a minute there and so The August Break had been brought to a premature end. Instead I’ve had a wonderful day in the sun. How ’bout you?

Y is for Yacht.
Origin of the word: 1550–60; from the Dutch jaght, shortened from jaghtschip – hunting ship, (deriv. of jagen, to hunt + schip, ship). The first yachts were built as light, fast sailing ships to pursue pirates, for use as customs vessels and to deliver pilots to waiting ships.
