National Historic Ships UK Photo Competition 2019 - Faces of the Sea
Arthur Beale are sponsoring a £300.00 prize for the best photo in the "Faces of the Sea" category. There are other categories too with different prizes but of course nothing could beat an Arthur Beale voucher -although four tickets on the Waverley sounds fun too. But don't hang around, the photos need to be in by the end of August. There will be a posh awards ceremony in Greenwich on 26th November. So get onto the website - nationalhistorisships.org.uk and upload your favourite nautical photos...

Tony Curphey - the oldest person the sail solo non-stop around the world!

Tony Curphey - the oldest person the sail solo non-stop around the world!
Tony has arrived back in Hampshire after 30,000 miles of sailing in his 32 ft yacht Nicola Deux (a Nic 32). Apparently he is looking forward to a King Prawn Curry from his local take-away. I confess that after a long sea voyage the desire for a curry was high on my list, coupled with a beer and a shower. Deciding which pleasure to have first is one of the hardest decisions to make. A beer in the shower might be possible but the curry simply wouldn't work. Tony has accomplished a truly amazing...

Classic Boat Awards

Classic Boat Awards
Last night I was invited to attend the Classic Boat Awards Ceremony by Michael Wright, the proud owner of Carlotta a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter built in 1899. Carlotta had been nominated in two award categories, as the “Best Restored Sailing Vessel Over 40ft” and also “Centenariun of the Year”. Arthur Beale were proud to have supplied various bits of chandlery, charts and a tender and outboard for Carlotta. We were almost as pleased as Michael was when the boat not only picked up the Best...

New Maiden Film

New Maiden Film
A highly recommended film to watch, although if you are a male yachting journalist of a certain era then you may prefer to stay at home! If you are in London, we saw it at the Curzon in Brunswick Square which was very civilised and the nearby Lamb pub in Lambs Conduit Street serves up a good pint. Here’s what the press release says: MAIDEN is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the...

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - Film Show Thursday 6th December 18:45 to 20:45

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - Film Show Thursday 6th December 18:45 to 20:45
We finally made up our dithering minds and decided to maintain the underwater theme set by our award winning* shop window by chosing "20,000 Leagues under the Sea" for our Christmas Film. It has to be said that 20,000 leagues is a very long way down. In fact, not only would my dive watch start leaking, but you would pop out the other side. However, let's not get pedantic, it's a great film and it is the first ever example of Steam Punk. I doubt I can back that up with evidence but I'm sure I...
