Another great looking Weekender in the UK! I'll let Mr. Sykes note introduce his work:
Just a quick note to let you know that another weekender has been born. i am delighted with the result of my two and a half years of work, and have had many complements from other boat owners!
Our first launch at Rutland water in the heart of England was a dream , and we have sailed there many times since. We spent our summer vacation in Cornwall, and sailed in the Fowey esturary, a memorable time was had by all. The boat is now in winter storage and we look forwards to next years sailing.
Thanks for the shots!
This is one of the more interesting uses of color on a Weekender. It works, I think. This looks like a nice, clean building job; all the details look well done. One thing I noticed which isn't mentioned in the letter below: the boom looks to be made from a windsurfer mast and the mast also looks like wrapped carbon! Thanks for the pics!
I think I'll let the builder describe these shots in more detail below...
The Aunty Su is another great looking Weekender from Down Under. Our Southern Hemisphere fleet is getting prety large! Unfortunately, they suffer from much the same distance problem we have on the West Coast of N.America; perhaps to a greater degree as they're on distant continents and islands! Still it's nice to see so many boats down that way.
Note the graceful tiller conversion, and the nice sweep of the full-length cockpit coamings.
