And at the end, when the band struck up the opening bars of Sailing, the audience all grasped their paper sailor
hats, jumped up and swayed themselves almost to seasickness in adoration.
Many are already kitted out with paper sailor
's hats ready for the near-anthem We Are Sailing.
There is a party atmosphere about the whole show, underlined by everyone in the audience being handed a paper sailor
's hat to wear in the Sailing finale.
