Why Alaska? Does it look cold?
Usually I can't be bothered but it looks relatively straightforward (which usually means, with Tillerman, it is going to be convoluted).A Dinghy 350 is my final answer.
Good guess Tweezerman. If I was in a 350 I would have been at Minorca Sailing. And that is most definitely NOT Minorca. The trees are wrong for starters. No palm trees!Actually the trees may be a fairly good clue to the location. And the boats in the background may be a much better clue than the boat I am in.
Geeze. Does it look that French?
UK? Norfolk? 60s?
That's a good guess phil for all sorts of reasons.Some of the boats in the background look a bit like the kind of motor cruisers that you would find on the Norfolk Broads and I have written about a couple of holidays we have had there.The boat I am in is clearly not one of the sailing dinghies I have owned so it is a hint that I might be on vacation somewhere and have borrowed or rented that boat for the day. Not to mention that that lifejacket looks like the kind of lifejacket that might be given to someone renting a boat - not the kind of PFD that would be owned by a dinghy sailor like myself.But it's not the 60s. I turned 12 in 1960 and the guy in the photo looks quite a bit older than a teenager, I think?And it's not Norfolk.Hint. How old do I look? I turned 40 the year I moved to the USA.

I don't care where you are, but I am concerned for your safety in that crusty ole PFD....
I'm a crusty old man - I came with jacket
Skippy is getting close!
You are in Oregon at the Gorge. I saw you there tonight!
LOL. Someone is still reading this blog!Yes I am NOW at the Gorge and I had dinner last night with a bunch of RS Aero sailors who are here for the various RS Aero festivities in the next 5 days.Just to put the photo quiz to rest - the year was 1990 (or thereabouts) and the picture was taken in Wyoming - on one of the lakes in the Grand Tetons National Park - Jenny Lake if I recall correctly.I am so surprised nobody guessed that.
That PFD is very ...er... large: was it part of a handicap system?
