Junk rigged Corribee - 'LUCY E'.
- Hello all.
I recently purchased 'SHANTYMAN' (see photos) and moved her from the
Medway mud to the Ouse mud in Newhaven in February. What a great wee
boat she is! My trust that I would enjoy the change to Junk after a
sailing lifetime of Sloop and Gunter rigs was fully justified. I have
taken her on a few short hops along the coast from Eastbourne to
Shoreham and found her sailing qualities exceeded my expectations. I
am looking forward to mid-June when I hope to get as far west as I can
with Wewymouth as my target. Due to the curse of arthritis, I find
hauling the sail up the last third a real struggle, so investing in a
winch to assist was a good move. My thanks to Derek Chipperfield and
Ken Powell for help and advice.
