Ok... I've written a few articles (at least 3 for now) and to put them into context they are based on text from a book I am currently putting together pertaining to the Tall Ship Festival that occurred in Port Adelaide in August and September of 2013.
The primary aim of the book is to bring awareness to and celebrate what the participating tall ships are doing and achieving through their respective Sail Training/Voyage Programs.
Also to draw attention to the inclusiveness the sailing environment enables. And lastly to create a community family album with many beautiful visuals that will draw the reader/viewer into the experience....
Just a taster, but I hope you enjoy them!
I grew up around family members who were either building wooden boats, piloting tugboats, roaring around in a speed boat, who knew the art of putting ship into bottles, boat blue prints, drawings and paintings, chatter regarding boats amongst other things and summers at the beach.
