    The sun generates the wind

    Perhaps it has no engine and lots of solar panels?

    Just seen a photo of Greta Thunberg on the foredeck waving goodbye with her waterproof trousers tucked into her boots. Hope someone tells her before they hit rain or spray.

    On the tucked-in or not question....
    I have a memory of fighting down a no 1 for a no 3 at the bow during my coastal skipper (far too late, but it was experience we were getting...).
    I have always had my sailing breeks on the outside of my boots, for obvious reasons. However, it took three of us to change sails that boisterous day at the bow and I recall green water coming up inside my trousers, filing my boots then receding. I doubt this lass will be working bow so she needn't worry (that) much .
    I was too busy to notice much!
