Summary

A sign for Worthing Yacht Club opens the film. Groups of people stand looking at boats and talking to yachtsmen, on a wet and windy day. Families join the yachtsmen with children playing in and around the boats. There are close-ups of various yachts on land. The film closes with a portrait of a toddler (Alexis), splashing around in puddles and playing with a plastic bottle.
