You missed me Grandad.I'll get you on the next pass, you little bugger.
The course was clearly marked with colored buoys. ORBuoyed up for victory.
The boy regretted being christened "Mark".
It would make for interesting racing if all the marks were small children, wouldn't it?

I wonder if his surname could be Rounding?
I see there are 5 guys on Linkedin who really are called Mark Rounding.
What vintage is that photo? 1970?Why are all the sails white and hulls vella grey now? I'd love another yellow hull one like my first. Actually, I'll stick with the white sail.R
Have not seen the Yellow ad Red sail for a long time.
The photo was posted this week on the Laser Forum with the question, "Does anyone know of an in use Laser older than hull 257?" implying this is a current picture. No explanation of the boy in the water. And of course having a sail with 3 digits does not prove that the hull has a 3 digit number too.The yellow, orange and red sails (and other colors) were around in the early 80s when I bought my first Laser, although I don't think the original Lasers in the early 70s had the option to have colored sails. My first Laser, 93933, had a sail that color.
