We have had some really strong winds recently but on Friday the Northerly finally let up and I was able to do some gentle sailing. It was still gusty so I just used the loose footed main and not the main gunter rig.
It’s great to see you back and playing with the mud again!
And a poingent piece of music too,
All the best,
PS: my kind of film, love Scotland etc. but I can relate more to this type of sailing
I forgot to mention the new logo…..
Keep turning Ketch ???
Looks like a Fisher 25 to me……..
Fisher 25s are the last boat for many old men. They buy them, lavish money on them, then get ill and the boat stands for a year or two
before they or their wives bite the bullet
so there are lots of tatty ones with good engines around
I would also consider one that was in good nick but needed a new engine
I have been watching that one ….. but it does not have inside steering so is no better than a Centaur – worse because it falls over when the tide goes out. The ideal wooud be a bilge keel fisher 25.
Wonderful, the magic is back. The light on the mud and water, with classics in profile, is what does it for me.Reminds me of the early slug stuff in the same area.Thanks D
I am enjoying the Deben. The sailing changes with the geography. I think that the Solway Firth will be like suffolk to some degree. I expect that the 7th and 8th to last films will be of the firth of Forth,Moray Firth and the Tay in the Minstrel so those will include more shallow sailing.
I do like a muddy creek…I will be passing your way mid June for a night at Woodbridge Marina, it would be good to see you?
I will be here all summer – not going anywhere
so drop by …. you know where I live
Love it, love it, love it. After reading through the last lot of “Chis makes some interesting points” I got a bit depressed. This latest film is KTL and its what its all about.
Well said Riley, keep this up D and we will be modestly tapping again.
