Subject: RE: Mystic Sea Song Fest 2002
Congratulations to the Mystic's "Festival of Sea Music" organisers. For me, the highlight of the festival were The Barrouallie Whalers.

On this our first visit to America, we were impressed by the town and its magnificent houses. It was a sensible idea to extend the festival into the community and Baggyrinkle were pleased to be part of that.

It was quite an experience for us to sing shanties whilst the crew actually performed the job of heaving and hauling on board the whaler Charles W. Morgan.

It was also very nice to meet fellow Mudcatters, especially Barry Finn, who proved very helpful in the early stages of our planning the American Trip.

To Craig, Rick and fellow organisers, the festival was a job well done! Long may it continue to flourish and we very much hope to be part of it at some future date.

Thanks also to Michelle who looked after us well.

Dave Robinson & Baggyrinkle.
