Barry Finlay belonged to an elite group of sailors in South Shields Sailing Club. Yes, an elite group, the ‘Miracle’ sailors...the epitome of all that’s best in competitive dinghy racing in our Club. It’s a fact that all other sailors at the Club secretly wish they were Miracle sailors.Barry’s time in the Club came after the big Miracle fleet days at Shields, but when he did join, he certainly took up the mantle of his predecessors with great enthusiasm. Styles of sailing of course are often seen to be related to character and personality, as illustrated by past and present Miracle sailors: Bob Robinson...he sailed a Miracle which was never maintained much year on year and which had sails looking like old pocket handkerchiefs, but his bolt-upright posture, reflecting his general attitude to life, kept him both bang on the wind without deviation by so much as a half a degree and always in contention.
