When I was 18, I sailed across the Atlantic in the Tall Ships Race.
On a 70’ boat, with 16 other people on board, we left Cadiz in Spain and, 4 weeks later, arrived in Bermuda. After mooring the boat, we all stepped out onto the quay, walked a few paces and turned to look back. I’ll always remember the comment by one of my fellow shipmates in this moment, after after spending nearly a month getting intimately familiar with every nook and cranny of this vessel:
“Huh. I’d forgotten it was red.”
Hang on, we’d been living up close and personal with this boat for the last 4 weeks – how on earth could you not have known what colour it was? Surely that’s a pretty fundamental characteristic to have overlooked?
