Home for tea

The Royal Over-Seas League's members magazine Overseas (unfortunately not available online) has a nice article about a member's recent transatlantic journey on the tall ship Stavros S Niarchos. Particularly amusing is the part where they picked up two American women whose boat had capsized 16 hours earlier. So they hauled them on board and gave them a hearty English breakfast. Just imagine the situation: you're sitting in the water for 16 hours, fearing for your life, and then a pirates like tall ship turns up and gives you English breakfast ...
