Weekly Photo Challenge. Endurance: Resilience, Strength, Stamina, Determination, Hardiness.
I like this photo which was taken on a recent holiday. It’s of my dad and brother sailing. They sailed together for years until my brother grew up and wanted faster boats which my dad had no real interest in. This was the first time they had been out together in a few years and they spent ages on this old RS 2000 messing around and enjoying in the wind. The boat was an old one and at certain speed it whistled along the water, the rudder unclipped and the cleats didn’t work. But it didn’t break and both boys and boat enjoyed fun.
I guess what I’m trying to say is the boat endured the pressure of being pushed to its limits. This photo is also taken about a second before a capsize so you can see my brothers arms flailing as he tries to rescue it. He actually managed to save the boat going over, so I like to think these photo’s how a dual aspect of endurance, both man and boat !
