Polly at Sea
Polly sailing on the Firth of Clyde

Polly enjoyed summers as a child dinghy sailing near Narbonne in the South of France. As she grew up she wanted more challenging sailing, so her father bought a catamaran. This catamaran has now been lent to the local sailing club, restored and named 'Le Polly'. Here is a photo of 'Le Polly' being launched for the first time in August 2010. Polly is lying in a hospital bed, but, at least 'Le Polly' will be speeding across the lake in the South of France most weekends of the summer.

taking 21 young trainees across the Atlantic
and one of the cartoons of their exploits which she drew in her diary
