The start of the 50th Barcolana Autumn Cup Regatta, which as today is the crowdest in the world, is held in the Gulf of Triest, Italy, in the northern Adriatic Sea every second Sunday of October.
When the Barcolana was founded in 1969 the participating boats were 51.In 2018 there were 2689 boats, where expert sailors and ordinary sailing lovers were able to race side by side in the same regatta. A unique event where everybody is a "winner" since for the majority of the participants the fun and excitement of taking part at this event is more important than cutting the finish line.
This year, on 14th October 2018, Spirit of Portopiccolo won the 13 mile race in only 57.04 minutes, followed by Ottica Inn, and Way of Life.

St Dunstan's in the East church's garden, City of London

This little gem has a long history. The church was originally built in about 1100. It was severely damaged in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and was patched up between 1668 and 1671. A steeple was added in 1695–1701 to the designs of Sir Christopher Wren. It was built in a gothic style sympathetic to main body of the church.

In 1817 it was found that the weight of the nave roof had thrust the walls seven inches out of the perpendicular. The state of the structure proved so bad that the whole building was taken down. It was rebuilt to a design in the perpendicular style by David Laing. The foundation stone was laid in November 1817 and the church re-opened for worship in January 1821. Built of Portland stone, with a plaster lierne nave vault, it could accommodate between six and seven hundred people. Wren's tower was retained in the new building.

The church was severely damaged in the Blitz of 1941. Wren's tower and steeple survived the bombs' impact. Of the rest of the church only the north and south walls remained. In the re-organisation of the Anglican Church in London following the War it was decided not to rebuild St Dunstan's, and in 1967 the City of London Corporation decided to turn the ruins of the church into a public garden, which opened in 1971.

The ruin was designated a Grade I listed building in 1950.

If you like Amy Winehouse you probably know that her video Back to Black has been filmed at Abney Park cemetery in East London.
This place is well worth a visit. You won't find Amy here, as she's resting at Edgwarebury Lane Cemetery, but you can listen to the stories of many music hall stars from the Victorian era buried at Abney Park if you choose to attend one of its guided history tours.

Did you know that Martin Luther King spoke to a congregation of over four thousand people at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1964?
Aside from being an activist, Martin Luther King was also a Baptist minister and he spoke about three different approaches to life in a sermon now known as The Three Dimensions to a Complete Life.
