Family days at Easter time, captured by Ron Wing, an active member of the Institute of Amateur Cinematographers. In this home movie, there are a few unofficial 'captains', notable from a cap or a pipe; both Walton and Harwich quite literally being the perfect haven for them. The family are lucky to have sunny but windy weather, perfect for sailing, although idling at the harbour looks to be an inviting activity also.
