The joy of sailing (classic yachts)

There’s absolutely nothing here to do with Glasgow yacht designer to the world G.L. Watson; just the pure joy of classic yacht sailing and racing.

Thanks for the nod to Jeckells Sailmakers of Wroxham, Norfolk Broads, England.

George Lennox Watson did design similar boats to the 109-year-old Broads yacht Maidie; he even designed yachts that sailed on the Norfolk Broads. You can read all about it in Martin Black’s beautiful biography, G.L. Watson – The Art and Science of Yacht Design by buying it here.
