From the Independent Cinema Let’s
From the Independent Cinema Let’s go to the seaside! Travel round our gorgeous, varied coast, filmed throughout the 20th century from 1901 to 1978, in our fourth programme from Britain on Film on Tour.
Take a nostalgic promenade to classic British holiday resorts including Weston-super-Mare, Morecambe and Skegness, a visit to Butlin’s in Brighton and 1930s surfing in Newquay, while a 1947 information film cleverly undercuts travel clichés by showing how Dover, a traditional tourist town, is remaking itself after heavy bombings during WWII.
From travelogues enticing holidaymakers to the beach to promotional films celebrating the work of fishermen and shipbuilders, these films capture the traditions, industry and joyfulness of the British coast.
The first showing of this film was in 2015

This is the jaw-dropper -
This is the jaw-dropper – many of the world’s finest restored classic yachts tied stern to in the historic stone harbour of St Tropez, and racing in the gulf during the day make for a truly awesome sight.
The event started with a race between a modern and a classic yacht at the end of September in 1981 and grew into a classic boating jamboree called The Nioulargue – named after an offshore reef buoy marker for the racing.
It’s one of those events that should be on every classic sailor’s bucket list – even if it’s just to watch the 300 or so boats (of all types and size) out racing from the harbour mole and then to have a pint in the Irish bar.
Accommodation can be surprisingly good value – at this end of the season and the conviviality of the crews is infectious. Nearest airport is Nice.

LAST CHANCE AUCTION FOR PROJECT
LAST CHANCE AUCTION FOR PROJECT BOATS:
Dozens of project boats at Blackwater Marina at Maylandsea are being given a last chance by auctioning them off on Sunday October 7 with three months free storage included with every boat sold. Boats in need of saving range from small sailing cruisers to an historic tug, and many are being offered at “no reserve,” with 6% of all proceeds going to three charities. The day will also include a boat jumble and on-water events.
Marina manager Beccs Polden said: “We have at least 30 boats that have become our property in lieu of debt. At least another five, some afloat and others ashore, are being sold by owners who are no longer using them. It’s sad, but we want to do our very best to find homes for them all and give them a chance to be enjoyed.” To give the boats the best chance there will be no buyers’ premium to pay.
No reserve means that the highest bid, even if it’s only £1, buys the boat. The free three-months’ storage that comes with each boat is worth at least £300 for the smallest. One of the larger boats is historic Thames “Tosher” tug Freelance, built in 1916 and in service until 2000. The 33ft tug is fitted with a 1950s Perkins 100 diesel, itself a piece of maritime heritage. Another classic is Demeter, a delightful 21ft wooden yacht built in 1954. In the case of Penny Blue, a charming 18ft wooden Blackwater Sloop built in 1963, the owner is very generously donating the entire proceeds to the auction’s nominated charities. Fibre-glass yachts include a Macwester 8m, Vivacity 650, Westerly Jouster, Westerly Cirrus, Seamaster 925, Moody 346, two Pandoras and a Leisure 17.
The event, which is free to attend and with free parking, will also include a boatjumble and free RIB rides, canoeing and sailing taster sessions provided by Maldon Sea Cadets. In addition to 6% of the hammer price of every boat sold, stall fees (£10 private/£20 commercial) and bidder registration fee (£5) will all be donated to the RNLI, Maldon Sea Cadets, and GAIN, the charity supported by well-known sailing writer Dave Selby who has a very rare viral condition called Guilain-Barré Syndrome that means he loses mobility in his legs every four-and-a-half weeks and then spends three days in hospital having antibodies pumped into him to restore his legs. GAIN funds vital research into this rare illness (see www.impracticalboatowner.com/charity).
Auction details, bidding registration forms and listings of boats for sale will appear on www.blackwater-marina.co.uk. For more details contact email@example.com or phone 01621 740264.
