Sailing down wind in the Channel
The Altocumulus are growing, a front is coming on us
A cold front, with his rain followed by showers
With his quick wind shift
“Hey steerer, watch the flag, keep the sails full
Later we’ll jibe, with control on the sheet and the preventer
But not now, our old Lady don’t like we slam her boom”
