Local Classics

A few local classics at the Elephant Boatyard, the dark water reflecting the high trees does seem to set them off very well.

Above just about my perfect boat, powerful, lovely sheer, stepped coach roof. Below although not especially a fan of canoe stern, Saluki is really lovely.

Much as I actually enjoy varnishing, I prefer to see this much on someone else's boat.

Gipsy Moth IV is a 53 ft (16 m) ketch that Sir Francis Chichester commissioned specifically to sail single-handed around the globe

What better spot to chill in the early evening after a day on the water.

  1. Despite looking gorgeous, I've heard Gypsy Moth was a right bugger under sail?
