St. Andrews Seafaring Sweater
The Old Man and the Sea
At the boat shed, a weathered-looking fellow pulls away the tarp.
A 1969 Salcombe yawl, the two-masted sailboat your dad raced back in the day.
“T’was your father’s, lad,” he says.
“I remember it,” you tell him. Three words to stand in for the years and miles it took to get you back here.
An hour later, it’s you and the boat on flat water under blue sky, and it all comes back to you, as things that are in one’s blood always do.
You show up every morning. By day four, you’re getting to know the boat again. Your father, too, by way of the sea.
You wonder if you’d have the nerve to sail around the world.
Not that you have anything to prove.
St. Andrews Seafaring Sweater (No. 5858). We started with the classic cable knit sweater your dad wore with his sailing shorts (before wetsuits caught on) and then gave it a makeover for the colder months. In luxurious, ample 100% lambswool with a rib knit at the neck, cuffs, and bottom band. Imported.
