Last week we sailed in the August Classic Cruise from the East Coast Old Gaffers Association
It was great. It was my first time sailing in England (river Orwell, Deben and Stour) and we enjoyed it very much despite the strong winds. I was not with my Winkle Brig but with the catboat from my friend Jaap (see pictures).
We were happily surprised that there also an Winkle Brig participating in the event: WB 36 (yacht Calibris) owned by Geoffrey Osborne (see pictures). Of Course we met each other and spoke a lot about our WBs.
Geoffrey won the price for the smallest boat in the event!

hi Barend
Thank you for the picture of my Winkle Brig WB36 Calidris.
I hope you are still enjoying life as much as during the OGA East Coast Clissics Cruise.
As you csn see from the picture I am using a rope mainsheet horse that helps to reduce twist.
I would be pleased to be in direct email contact with you.
