Had your fill of Jimmy Stewart and the Yellow Brick Road?

Here’s a great feelgood holiday film from the wonderful world of traditionally hand-built beautiful wooden boats. It’s quite old, but this Jimmy is still at it.

(Don’t forget Part 2 & Part 3)

It’s not just in Dublin Bay that the Irish uphold the deep rooted yacht racing and boat building traditions discussed by Hal Sisk in

Dublin Bay – The Cradle of Yacht Racing.

Thanks to WoodenBoat’s Carl Cramer for the heads-up.
