Junk in Weymouth
« on: August 08, 2010, 09:57:17 pm »

This was in Thursdays local newspaper. A chap from Sherborne in Dorset has a Chinese Junk that he keeps down at Weymouth. He is looking for 3-4 people to crew for him. When I get the chance I will try and get some photos of it. :-) :-)....Smudge

Blondie Haslar (try  on Google)
Had  a Junk Rigged Folkboat (I think it was a Folkboat)
He used it in the transatlantic races in the early days
Simples!  About two control lines int the cockpit
or inside easy!

Smooth seas never made skilful sailors
Up Spirits  Stand fast the Holy Ghost.
