If you’re packing for your summer hols at the moment, spare a thought for poor old Charles Martin of Macfarlanes. While it’s considered okay these days for your kids to beat you at Nintendo, that simply doesn’t apply when it comes to watersports. The thinking chez Martin, though, is that Daddy is letting the family down with his rubbish sailing.
Martin, a relative novice to the yachtie world, has been told by his wife and kids that he has to brush up his skills before they’ll get in a sailing boat with him.
