Monday 4th September 1933

Sultry. Afternoon boating with Dickie Wish. Up Foss as usual, in the dinghy. Secret of good steering seems to be this: look far away, not at the bows of the boat, but right ahead. A good steersman has that “distant” look in his eyes – and the boat goes straight forward. Before returning, we went under High Bridge to Stamp End locks – if we could get passed those locks!
