The old Gaffers festival

Last weekend was full of music, song and dance to the back drop of the most colourful and dressed up boats on the Isle of Wight. The old Gaffers festival had its 50th celebrations. A Gaff rigged boat has a main sail with four sides unlike the sloop which has the more common triangle sail.
I spent the afternoon soaking up the atmosphere and taking pictures. Enjoy the tour of Yarmouth on such a great day.

It was a wonderful day and as you can see from the photos I stayed to the very end.
