Meanwhile Back In 1948….

….There was a great sailing day off Kingston! Plenty of breeze, a camera crew on hand, a few good hikes, one broken plank, and a GREAT example of the old newsreel / movie accent we don’t get to hear much these days. Click the first link to see the vid and hear the accent, and the next to get an explanation of where that accent came from. Both pretty interesting!

Thanks to Pete Van Rossem for sending the link!
