Yacht names are often a play on words and if so in this case the crew could be forgiven if they felt grumpy, grouchy or crotchety when their yacht's (Fraxious) spinnaker blew away. The strength of the wind is evidenced by the almost horizontal position of the wind sock in the background. The story had a happy ending as the spinnaker was subsequently rescued by a motorised, rigid inflatable boat. Image captured in June 2007 in Southampton water near to the BP oil terminal jetty.
