A close shave on the Yare

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH
I’D OFTEN wondered what happened to smaller craft when huge great coasters came up the Yare in the old days. Did steam give way to sail? No chance, if this cracking photo from Bryan Read’s collection is anything to go by. I think this one was taken at Postwick, So are they the Frostbites sailing club in action and, more importantly, how on earth did these young sailors survive in one piece?
