Taken at West Mersea, England, in the summer of 2015, this photo also hails from my walk up the beach to the local shipyards. Boats are a way of life on 'the island' (as it's known locally), from people living on houseboats through to the working boats of the RNLI and the fishermen.

The boats in the picture form a triptych capturing facets of the life of the island: from the workaday boat on the left through to the sleek sailboat on the right. Some of the country's Olympic hopefuls have hailed from these waters, including Team GB's Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark, another boost for region's sailing industry and a source of inspiration young seafarers.
