An unforgettable day

“It was for me, and I expect for all of us, an unforgettable day – the wind torn cloudy sky, great banks of cumulus with shafts of sunlight breaking through, the vast ocean with curling white horses… the Caird leaping away ahead, and behind us the gallant little Wills at one moment outlined against the sky on the top of a crest, and the next falling into the trough so that we could only see the top of her mast.”

– Alexander Macklin
