Roger Taylor’s 2011 voyage

September 12, 2011

Yet another epic voyage to Northern waters, this time well into the Arctic and reaching a point north-west of Spitzbergen. If my map reading is correct it is approximately as shown by the green arrow on the Google Maps screenshot below:

For sale and wanted

April 6, 2011

There is a healthy market for Corribees and Coromandels, and we get a number of advertisement requests each month from both buyers and sellers. Check the For Sale and Wanted page for our current ads – which currently includes a very tidy-looking bilge keeler in Stoke Gabriel (South Devon), and Tonga, a late mk2 fin-keeler ready for the season. Also well worth a look is Otter, a mk 2 and one of the few fitted with a Yanmar inboard diesel engine. Spares and fittings are always needed by restorers so if you have any un-needed parts available that others could use (especially spars, rigging and furling gear) an advertisement will get them to someone who can make good use of them.

We don’t have a formal payment system for the advertising page – all we ask is that it is boat-related and that you consider making a small donation to the site to help us cover our web hosting costs. Send an email to with the desired text and attach any photos you want to display. We recommend setting up a temporary email address (with, for example, Yahoo or Google) if you wish to avoid your main address becoming a spam target.
