La Longue Route - Tony Curphey

La Longue Route - Tony Curphey

La Logue Route is a circumnavigation according to the spirit of the great French sailor Bernard Moitessier. It is not a race but it's a pilgrimage, there is no regulation, no constraints, no obligations, no price either ... Just the ultimate reward to have realised a dream. It is a return to the true values, personal human responsibilities of every man and every sailor. The freedom, the serenity of being at sea, alone facing the ocean. Arhur Beale was proud to be able to supply Tony Curphey...

No wonder we struggle to keep up with demand for our Black Welsh Mountain Beerenberg Pullovers
First of all you have to find them! The clever little darlings seem to like hiding as clumps of heather like the one in the middle of the picture. This lovely shaggy beast would make a couple of our Beerenberg Black Welsh Mountain Oiled Wool Pullovers but even when you find them you have to catch them and they are mighty shy.
