Scandinavian Sailing

Resim
For the last few weeks I have been skippering the top gallant schooner Activ in the southern Baltic, and as always over here, have been treated to a delightful fleet of traditional boats in both Germany and Denmark. They do not have so many yachts as we have in UK, but they have a bigger fleet of traditional boats in the form of rebuilt and converted fishing boats and cargo boats. Boats for Sale The Danes produced many thousands of fishing boats, usually built of oak on oak, and mostly with their signature elliptical counter stern that is so exquisitely beautiful. As in UK, many of these boats were broken up on the beaches when the EU changed the fishing rules, but many survived and are sailing today as either charter boats or private yachts. Yacht for Sale I came across one in Flensburg last week that is as close to yacht finish as I have ever seen a working boat. She is about 60’ on deck and rigged as a two mast topsail schooner with steeply raked masts in the American fash

Yachts Market Archives

Resim
After more than 35 years of running the brokerage, we have built up a long list of boats and yachts we have either sold or inspected all over the world. Up until last autumn, these archives were a slightly disorganised mess in the cellar below our office. Yacht for Sale However, after wasting far too much time looking for past information on particular boats, it was decided that something had to be done. This was not a job to be relished, however the task was given to Richards mother Pam Gregson who has spent many hours locked in the cellar going through mountains of paperwork and box loads of old photographs. Boats for Sale The result of four months hard work is a very well organised set of filing cabinets with details of over 5000 boats going back the last 35 years. The paperwork is backed up with many thousands of photos, most of which were taken by Peter on his travels over the years. Yacht Market To us this is a very useful resource that we regularly dive into wh

Antigua classic

Resim
One of the benefits of working in this game is being able to mix business with pleasure, and that is exactly what I am doing this week after accepting an invitation to skipper a yacht for friends in the Antigua Classics regatta. The boat is a gaff yawl designed and built by Spirit Yachts of Ipswich. true to Spirit form she has a spade rudder and fin & bulb keel which I think is a very interesting combination with the more traditional rig. Boats for Sale After a day out practising with our crew on Thursday, we lined up in the first start of the regatta on Friday with high hopes, and we were not disappointed. It was a long reach to the first mark in a good F5 with typical Atlantic seas. Yacht for Sale We found ourselves 3rd round the mark behind a big bermudan cutter built by Luke Bros. around 1905 called Lily Maid and Marcus Rowden’s 3 mast lugger Grayhound which ate up the distance on this free reach with her enormous sail area, flying along at 10 knots with the wind ju

Sailing trophies in the sun

After four superb days of racing off the south coast of Antigua this week, we have managed to steer Spirit of Callisto to first place in class. Lying in second place after day 3 we had it all to do, and with the course and conditions in our favour we managed to get the gun and the overall win. Yacht Market The second day had brought very challenging conditions with winds up to 3o knots and a decent sea running, the heavier boats in our class came into their own with the exquisite gaff cutter Holly Mae, owned and sailed by Joff Rorke, powering around the course under a deluge of white water and deservedly taking the winning gun. Yacht for Sale Day 3 was simply one of the best days sailing I have ever had. We were beaten into second place behind the gaff ketch Old Bob after handicap by 21 seconds, but that did not matter. The course is called The Cannon, two laps of a simple reach to the first mark 6 miles out to sea and a reach back in which meant the whole fleet were sailin

Charter sailing on a wooden ship

We have recently launched another section of the web site focusing on traditional charter vessels. Although not our core business, we have teamed up with good friend and owner of Bessie Ellen, Nikki Alford, to utilise our web site to promote not only Bessie Ellen but also Irene, another West Country trading ketch from the early part of the 20th Century. Nikki has been running Bessie for many years now doing everything from carrying cargo to sail training with disadvantaged youths, however the majority of her time is spent taking people on sailing holidays and providing them with superb experiences and first hand knowledge of what it is like to sail a traditional vessel. Yacht for Sale This is something that we are very passionate about and Richard has been involved with Bessie Ellen skippering her on quite a few occasions so if we can help bring in some more business through our web site then it can only be a good thing. Boats for Sale This year Nikki has taken over the ma

Best boating holiday ideas

Resim
We run through a few sailing and boating holiday options, from beach-based dinghy sailing to cruising flotilla or bareboat options… what could be better than enjoying a week or two on the water? For the sailing obsessed, a holiday on the water is ideal, but if you've never been before, there’s also no better way to introduce beginners to the sport than in warmer climes with expert tuition (see get your family boating in 6 steps). Sailing is also an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family, from child to pensioner, couples, whole families or individual travelers. Yacht for Sale It's a social sport and a great way to explore a new country. Here are just a few ideas… Yacht Market BEACH BASE SAILING HOLIDAYS Neilson specialises in sailing and skiing holidays and the company has a wide range of beach-based centres. One of the company’s unique offerings is a stay and sail package that consists of a week at a beach base, learning some of the basics, before a week lo

How to Drive a Personal Watercraft

Resim
Driving a personal watercraft isn't as easy as you might imagine, our guide has some handy tips to ensure success and help keep you safe. How do you drive, or ride, a personal watercraft? Well the technology has come a long way in modern PWs (see Jet Skis and personal watercraft: the guide). They now use four-stroke engines instead of the two stroke power plants that polluted the very environment people were out there to enjoy. They now have variable trim systems and electronic “nannies” to help new riders stay out of trouble and improved ergonomics and safety features. Boats for Sale But they are still jet-drive watercraft and that means there is no steering if you’re not on the throttle. Yacht for Sale That’s what gets people into trouble. It’s anathema to what we learn in driver’s education classes in a car and it doesn’t apply to propeller-driven boats, either. To ride one successfully means not “riding over your head,” which means at speeds that are appropriate fo

Stand Up Paddleboards: SUP for fun and fitness

Resim
If you crave more time on the water, check out the quickest way to get out on your local bay, river, or harbor: paddleboarding, also called Stand Up Paddleboard or SUP for short. You’ve probably seen them on your local waterway: people standing on surfboards, propelling themselves forward with a tall paddle, like a 21st century Venetian gondolier. A relatively new sport, stand up paddleboards (or SUPs) have grown rapidly in popularity, why is that? There are three great reasons why this odd-looking sport has taken off along coasts around the world, and they all revolve around easy access to the water. Yacht for Sale Stand up boards are lighter to transport than a kayak, less complicated to operate than an outboard, and far easier to rig than a small sailboat or windsurfer. As one of my sailing friends says about his own paddleboard: “four seconds to rig! Yacht Market In keeping with that easy access theme, you only need a few basic skills to stand up and paddle. So whether y

How to start your kids dinghy sailing

Resim
Getting your kids into dinghy sailing can be hugely rewarding and a great way of introducing them to skills which will stand them in good stead for any pastime on the water. Paula Irish shares her top tips gleaned from the experience of introducing her two children to the sport. Dinghy sailing is a fabulous sport for children, and it can lead to a lifetime's passion... Yacht for Sale if you get it right (for more tips on getting your kids hooked on boating, read Get your family boating in 6 steps). Waders were a last resort when I started helping my children to sail. Hardly a fashion item, but it saves getting cold and wet in wellies or flip flops, it’s simpler than forever repairing scrapes to the boat, and far less stressful than watching a child struggle to launch independently in a breeze. Boats for Sale Rather embarrassingly, at just over 5ft tall, the waders make me look like an Oompa-Loompa. But it raises a smile from the kids on shore, even those nervous at the

How to water ski

Learning to waterski can be amusing for spectators, but our guide can help you make those first steps as smooth as possible. Learning to water ski is something to which you want to bring a video camera, because no one nails it right out of the gates. Keep those videos so you can laugh at them later, when you’ve progressed a little. Yacht Market But seriously, the usual progression for water skiing is to learn using a pair of skis, then dropping one so you can slalom and then doing deep-water starts with one ski, so you don’t have to go back and chase after the ski you left behind. Yacht for Sale I’ve never heard of one getting stolen or disappearing, but if you’re skiing on a river, it’s not going to stay where you left it. man learning how to water ski THE BASIC EQUIPMENT FOR WATERSKIING Some fundamental information includes having the basic equipment: a serviceable pair of skis, a good ski rope, a personal flotation vest and, well, a boat.
