sailing on kingston harbour 1973(ish)

Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready tacita2

a lot of dready art sailboats recently … one led to the next really … this is Tacita.
Tacita was built in the UK and sailed across the atlantic first to Cayman and then to Jamaica where she was bought by a Jamaican family … she later sailed off toward Australia but sank en-route.
kingston harbour, i’m told doesn’t look like that anymore and sure, it has changed, I saw it just 2 weeks ago …
the coastline is more crowded, quarries are gouged out of the hillsides …
the top 6″ of water is the only thing that’s alive under that the harbour is septic or a-septic, dirty and poisoned … but the sky is still lovely and the surface is still a lovely blue-grey.
smoood sailin!
