Sighted: an East Coast One Design

I’ve just seen my first East Coast One Design at Tollesbury.

She needs a little care, but there’s no question that these are outstandingly beautiful boats that must offer some truly glamorous racing and daysailing anywhere – so long as you don’t mind the British weather…

Read about them here and here, and click here to see photos of more ECODs.

 

Charles Napier Hemy, Victorian painter

Page through a wonderful – and wonderfully romantic – set of Victorian era paintings of mainly fishing  boats using the little arrows on the left and right of each frame.

Read about Charles Napier Hemy here. There are many more paintings here, here and here.

Beautiful photography from Judy and Tom Robinson-Cox

Judy and Tom Robinson-Cox are part of the Rocky Neck Art Colony, based in Gloucester, Cape Ann, Massachusetts.

The boats, needless to say, are fabulous. I’ve never seen film of a pinky under way before, so this film is quite a treat just for that!
