The mention of Mike Bender whom I'd not read brought this to light -
"Mike Bender, a retired consultant clinical psychologist, is undertaking a PhD on Masculinity and the British Yachting Narrative 1889 to 1939 in the English Department of Exeter University, whilst working on a book concerning the Yachting Narrative from 1595 to 2005. He is a committee member of the Association of Yachting Historians; and the South West Maritime History Society. He is a qualified Ocean Yachtmaster."
Maybe some of us just read the S&A books because we like to and they have things in the stories that we almost did or would have liked to have done or some of us did.
The psychology of it all? Not even crossed our minds - for most of us.
As for class and class system, I suspect not even noticed out here in the colonies.
