National Yachtline For information about sailing your yacht or pleasurecraft to and from the UK

Yes, I know that not all yachts are owned by Russian oligarchs and some are modest, but it still says something about the state of the nation that these two should be together.

    Not particularly related but it is another interesting juxtaposition. I noticed last Friday that when the Guardian website announced that the UK was now in recession, their job vacancies window lead with an advert for a Bailiff. Some people will do well out of this crisis, I guess.
