The blog will now be devoted not to boat building but to my 82-year-old Vertue, Sally II, now undergoing a well needed refit at Johnson & Loftus in Ullapool (and gliding...)

Caledonia Raid: STOP PRESS

Just had this from Jan Sijpestein, fresh from winning his class at the Caledonia Raid, in which he entered an Arctic Tern we built last year.

Dear Adrian

Arctic Tern came up trumps - brilliant performance, much admired.

Kathy Mansfield took lots of pictures which should be on her website before long. I will
send a few a later.

We did the Lochness Challenge in 12 ½ hrs - tacked all the way in light winds. Roughly 60
km of sailing.

We won our class (2)!
