Carioca, the late Bill Taylor's yacht, sailed from Dunbar for many years. She then sat on the 'hard' at Cromwell for 3 years, being recently sold to a new owner. The photo shows her being loaded onto a trailer: destination West Wales.

And in answer to your question: Carioca means an inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro, and is also the local dance.
