Pete Goss has been putting his new lugger Spirit of Mystery through sea trials, and It seems he’s positively ecstatic about her. ‘She is a thing of beauty; an organic living object that is everything I dreamed of and more,’ he says. ‘She sails well and is safe, fun, simple and kind. I couldn’t be happier.’
I’d say that he could have been describing many traditional style craft, but it’s great news that he’s so pleased with the new Mystery.
The crew including Pete, younger brother Andy; 14-year old son Eliot, and brother-in-law Mark Maidment is to undertake a two-week sea passage to prepare for their epic journey to Australia in October.
