Between May and August I laboured at building a patio in the back garden. Meanwhile, ‘Pike’, my Iain Oughtred skiff, waited patiently for her first sail with me as skipper. As things worked out, that didn’t happen until the last day of August, but it was a very special day.*
Since then I’ve sailed her several times. At the very top of this page, in the lefthand corner, there’s a search box where you can key in the word ‘Pike’. You’ll be offered a number of links taking you to articles about her.
Likewise, if you are interested in a particular boat, you can try searching for her.
Two months have passed since I had my first sail with ‘Pike’, and in addition to writing about her, I’ve posted articles with details of 24 other boats. Links to them are set out below - the most recent is at the top.
For more boats, have a look at Small Sailboats: http://bills-log.blogspot.co.uk/p/small-sailboats-here-are-links-to.html This link is permanently displayed to the righthand side, under ‘Pages’, and above a link to my Cruising Logs: http://bills-log.blogspot.co.uk/p/cruising-logs.html
