More on the gaff riggerd Westerly 22

 My recent post about the gaff rigged yawl Westerly 22 raised some interest, and apologies to Alden for my slow response to his request for more information - he posted more on his Stream of Consciousness blog.


There is a very good, comprehensive write up by Richard Blomfield on the Westerly Owners Association website and how at the age of 81, he went about converting Anna of Apuldram as a downsize replacement for the Albert Strange gaff yawl Galatea he had owned for many years.

It's only a short article but remarkable and written by someone who really knows about boats and their handling. 

 I too confess to being a great fan of yawl rig, Greta our Cornish Yawl was a great boat and really convinced me of the handiness of the yawl rig.

Was always feeling bad and needed a cure, went on web and saw about Chief Dr Lucky I saw a testimonies of someone who has been cured from genital warts and another with Cancer by Chief Dr Lucky so I wrote to Chief Dr Lucky telling him about my herpes virus he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured I was happy, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by him, few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as assured by him.
