17 October – Stowaway

Way to go!
Ride the flow,
see how far you float.
Perhaps you’ll see
the vast North Sea,
little leaf-fall boat.
What a thrill ride,
surfing wild tides –
sailing made extreme.
But first you need
to balance speed
with staying above stream.
Down the Nidd now,
show the Ouse how,
make it all the way.
Do a number
on the Humber,
conquer the leaf boat race.
Be a winner,
little skimmer,
play the game and thrive.
Stay right on course,
jet ski the force,
just remember, do not dive!
