More on Romilly
Phil Holden sent me a note today to pass on some links and additions to his site on Nigel Irens designs. Good stories and beautiful boats. One of the links is to a new lugger site (in Dutch) which promises to be a winner.
Here's what Phil has to say:
Two new articles added to the web site in the last month.
David Collin sent me an interesting article about a trip he made in Speedwell to the Manx Traditional Boat Festival in 2001. You can read it here.
Karel Heijnen sent me a great set of build and sailing pictures, with notes, of his woodcore Romilly, Zeuntje. You can see the article here.
As always I would very much welcome new articles plus comments on articles that are already on my site.
Best wishes, Phil"
"P.S. Cees Verhoef has launched a new website in the Dutch language on all things lugger but more particularly Roxane and Romilly here."
Thank you, Phil, for the update!
