Steve Fraser - Sailor, Gentleman, Poet

Those who were lucky enough to attend the ELYC Burns Supper on the 26th January were treated to Steve Fraser's very own take on 'My hearts in the highlands'. Rabbie would be proud.

My hearts in my Aero, my heart is not here

My hearts in my Aero (and the apres sail beer)

Chasing the wild wind and surfing the foam

My hearts in my Aero where ever I roam. 


It's farewell to the Aero with its full carbon mast

Farewell to the Aero - it's 9 rigs a blast

Farewell to the Aero - so fast on a reach

Farewell to the Aero - so light on the beach

But fall out the Aero in winter, yet deid

Yer muscles soon fail and it rolls on yer heid

And then y'll need rescued and that's such a bummer

So I'm back in a Laser till the beginning o summer

So it's back to the Laser with all its cruel tricks

The death roll, sheet roun transom,  the wee Laser flick

The hiking is brutal, I'll soon loose some lard

But capsize recovery is not quite so hard.
