Royal Somerset Levels Mirror Dinghy Regatta, Saturday August 16th 2014
If possible bring a mirror dinghy in which to race ... or a canoe, raft, pea green boat or sieve... or come along to crew... If you don’t like water come to cheer from the shore
Bring something to drink..
And mackerel ... mince & slices of quince wrapped up in a five pound note.... to barbecue for supper
Bring friends, enemies, current dancing partners & children...
See you there...
....They sailed away in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they sailed so fast,
With only a beautiful pea-green veil
Tied with a riband by way of a sail,
To a small tobacco-pipe mast;
And every one said, who saw them go,
`O won't they be soon upset, you know!
For the sky is dark, and the voyage is long,
And happen what may, it's extremely wrong
In a Sieve to sail so fast!'
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.
