I used to own a big old fishing trawler - Lady JaneAfter years of toil and fun, I've sold the trawler and bought a beautiful ketch - Arctic Rose This blog is about the progress I made with Lady Jane and the start of a completely different lifestyle with Arctic Rose, and other fun stuff.

Casualty from the round the island race,one of many in the strong winds including Gypsy Moth of Francis Chichester fame who lost her mizzen in a collision within 10 minutes after the start.
Yep - Round the Island Race. It was a pretty rough one this year, and I know of a number of collisions, crew-overboard (all recovered), and other accidents. The special trimaran used by folks in wheelchairs ended up upside down off Bembridge (again, everybody rescued unhurt). Pete
Hi John & PeteI feel that, although expensive, rather that than loosing it under a bridge or whatever.RegardsTim
