In the ice

Alasdair Flint of Arthur Beale’s has reminded me that there’s an Arctic forum at the church opposite the historic West End chandler’s at 1845 the 3rd February – as I write that is still tomorrow, just about…

Arthur Beale has been supplying several yachts that are about to head to the Arctic, and the forum will be a rare opportunity to fire questions at two skippers who ventured as far as Spitsbergen last year.

Alasdair says they will do a short presentation describing their voyages with a few slides and will then throw it open to the floor for the audience to ask questions. Everyone is welcome – the audience don’t have to be experts, but should be interested in sailing north or adventure in general.

Arthur Beales have hired the church in order to fit everyone in – a large crowd is expected – but there are still spaces left. If anyone would like to attend they should email Admission is free… and the shop itself is at 194 Shaftesbury Ave, London WC2H 8JP.

There will be special discounts on thermal clothing available in the shop – so it might be worth arriving early to take advantage of the offers!

Harrison Butler Z4 looking for a new home


Boatbuilder Kyle Abingdon is looking for a new home for his Harrison Butler Z4, having decided that there’s no sense in paying storage fees for a project he has no hope of being able to start in the near future.

He’s happy to negotiate terms but I’m pretty sure that it could be free to someone he is confident will make a good job of fixing her up and will look after her well – and thinks that could be someone who reads .

Kyle says there is no rot on her and that her keel bolts have been done – but there is a lot of work to do, as she needs a deck, cockpit and internals.

Kyle is I am happy to advise anyone thinking of taking her on.

She comes with her mast, boom and sails all in good order, but no other rigging. Her mooring fees are up to date and she is stored under a tent at Faversham, Kent.

Contact Kyle at tel 07737 868421 and email .

19ft project on eBay

This 19-foot small cruising yacht now on eBay was spotted by Fowey boatbuilder Marcus Lewis – who says it looks a lot more ‘doable’ than many other projects he sees…

I hope she finds a good home.




Marcus says it looks doable…
