Riding high


Great shot taken from the deck of the tosher Lamorna by Andrew Stevens looking up to the top of the swell as the netter Ajax passes him up on Sunday morning - this was half a mile off the shore in the lee of the land.

In this part of Cornwall, boats less than 20 feet are referred to as punts and boats that don't trawl from 20 to around 40 feet as toshers.
