One Last Session Before The Race | Wednesday early morning

Francis Kirke

Recommended Posts

Instead of Lord Kingston's yacht being in the forefront, it was the yacht which had been sailed there for Brandenburg's use which waited close to the water landing for Windsor this morn.


It was the last session they would have to practice before the big race, though the German was welcome to take her out another morning without Francis to gain his own measure and employ his own tactics with the crew. 


As the other morning, Francis and Tom were awaiting the Margrave's arrival sparring with swords on the deck, a usual morning routine.


Francis had stealthily brought a bottle of the much talked about Barenfang aboard. He was not one for getting drunk in the morning, but a quick glass to take away the morning chill was a different sort of a thing for a sailor. And if the Margrave did not wish to partake that early, the German would have a full bottle for later.
