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...

Good Little Ship - A Talk by Peter Willis You've missed it!

Good Little Ship - A Talk by Peter Willis     You've missed it!
Arthur Ransome’s "We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea" was inspired by his boat the "Nancy Blackett" which appears in the book as the Goblin. But there was more to her influence on the novel than that, as Peter Willis shows in this new book, which combines an analysis of this classic of maritime literature (“a book of which Conrad would have been proud” – Hugh Brogan) with the history of the boat herself, her life, near-death, restoration and renaissance as an ambassador for Ransome and his tales. Also...

London Fashion Week - An Antidote?

London Fashion Week - An Antidote?
London is buzzing with all the top fashion designers showing off their beautiful clothes. We are very proud to be part of this great international city with its hugely successful fashion industry.

A Cunning Plan

A Cunning Plan
I have asked all my friends who have boats on the East Coast if they would like to have an end of season meet-up in Brightlingsea. I rashly promised fair winds to all. That would be fair enough, but the yachts are coming from all over the place. So here is my cunning plan. I hereby appeal to all the good folk of Brightlingsea to get out their finest Henry Hoovers and turn them on full blast during the morning of 23 rd September (in any case, you know your stair carpet could do with a clean)...
