As we keep saying, Lloyd and I are bumbling amateurs when it comes to sailing. Luckily this project seems to have attracted a number of Adventure Club members who actually know what they’re talking about.
One of them is Jerry Clinton, who has already helped us with a number of boat-related issues, and also managed to dig up a very interesting Royal Cruising Club article by Erskine Childers, telling the tale of the author’s own cruise around the Frisians and the Baltic in 1898.
We now discover that Jerry is not content with being an armchair adventurer. He is planning to take his boat Marihona – a craft not dissimilar to Dulcibella – on a summer trip to Norway and back. And he’s looking for crew. Full details of Jerry’s plans can be found here: http://www.oga.org.uk/news/summer-crewing-opportunities-marihona
As far as we know, Jerry hasn’t got to Kent/Essex quite yet. When he does, we’re hoping to go and meet him and, perhaps, feature him and his boat in a future podcast. If you’re interested in getting on board, you’ll need to contact Jerry via the above weblink.
And don’t forget to stop off in Flensburg on September 26. We’re hoping to be there!
