You meet yachtsmen in the strangest of places, but on the top of Mount Snowdon in Wales has to be one of the most unlikely.
But that is where I met Andrew Hudson,46, his son Tim, 14 and his father Neville, 70.
As we got our breath back I asked Andrew why?
‘I thought for dad’s birthday it would be a good idea for us to have a challenge and get a photo of three generations on the mountain.’
But how could I tell he was a yachtsman? From his jockey hat of course, which had Margate Yacht Club emblazoned on the front. Andrew is the Kentish club’s commodore.
Could this be the start of something?
