Gorleston-on-Sea Fever With both thanks and apologies to John Masefield
I must go down to Gorleston again, to the lonely sea and the sky
All I ask is a dinghy and a Tacktick to steer her by
And a steady force four, that would surely please
The big Norfolk skies and a temperature over twenty degrees.
I must go down to Gorleston again, for the call of the running tide
And the rolling waves for a thrilling off wind ride
The steady winds, the white clouds flying
The open sea is the place to be, of that there’s no denying.
I must go down to Gorleston again, where everyday stresses are cured
To the club on the ‘prom’, where a warm welcome will be assured
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-member
And the enjoyable days on the water that I will long remember.
I must go down to Gorleston again, for the challenge of the sea
To compete against the other sailors, it’s surely the place to be
So note the date, it’s June 18th & 19th for the Beach Regatta
And if you can’t wait, you could join us on the 16th, for the Thursday evening regatta!
