Homage to my farther. Please note the attention to detail, everyone should tie their laces with the commando knot.

Thank goodness guffaw sails. At last after what has felt like to long a wait i have finally sailed guffaw successfully. In fact she goes well, this afternoon i spent 2 hours in eyemouth bay sailing back and forth trimming the rig, basically moving the sail forwards and back on the mast and balanced it up nicely. Going through the lifting and dropping of the sail and rowing about. This evening the wind dropped to 1-2 b force and i took fergus and freyja out in the sunset before bed. It was magic and we all loved the experience.
