Sara and Will Stirling Win Classic Boater(s) of the Year Award
Congratulations to Will and Sara for picking up the coveted Classic Boater of the Year Award.
It's hard to know how they pack it all in. They run two boatyards – No 1 Covered Slip in Plymouth and Treluggan Boatyard in Cornwall – and are apparently looking at a third, but it’s nothing new to Sara, who set up and ran, for 12 years, the well-known Working Sail yard. Both are trained boatbuilders, both have MAs in maritime history, and, if that weren’t enough, Will just completed his seventh Arctic voyage on his own wooden gaff cutter Integrity details of which appeared in the March issue of Classic Boat.
I was lucky enough to sail with Will to Greenland this year and I can say the award couldn't be shared with a more deserving skipper. The video below shows Will proding the berg to see if the underhang will snarl Integrity's keel. https://www.facebook.com/arthurbealeltd/videos/678320652636243/
