  • Description

    Six women and two young girls in a yacht show how "Eve" is learning to sail. They all wear sailors caps and dark outfits, from the title of the story it seems that they are "sea guides".

    Shot of the yacht sailing, then the women bringing down the sail as they reach land. A lesson on the breeches-buoy is given ("breeches and boys being deservedly popular"). A woman stands on shore and demonstrates technique. The other women and girls sit around her. The women have a go on a "Flying Fox" contraption. A small rowing boat is launched with three women aboard, then the other women put the yacht's sail up and leave the shore.

    Note: nicely shot.
