  4. Hi Splat, You have made my day!! - great to hear it was so helpful and more importantly that your wife is OK again My goal is that the skills that we teach will help you not only at sea, but also at work, home or if you are first on scene at a car crash. Thank you for the great story and feedback Cheers Dr Dave
  5. Hi SMU, No, Unlike some other courses, mine will cover both coastal and offshore medicine I am helped by Bek Costello who is an ED nurse educator (and great sailor and person), to teach the course . We have a group led by Sally Garret - Jenny, Suellen and Angus all help organise and ensure the day runs smoothly We all donate our time willingly and any profit is donated to help disabled sailing Cheers Dave

    Epilogue

    Thanks so much - I really enjoyed your posts We have just returned from a week renting a canal boat - we loved it I can see the attraction of doing what you have done and aim to in the future Cheers Dr Dave
  10. Thanks All, My memory may be failing however I was sure that Wrighty designed a few and also cruised the canals himself We've just returning from 7 days on a Burgundy canal and it was brilliant - I'd highly recommend it Cheers DD
  11. All good mate. Thanks for asking Anyone have some information on Wrighty's canal boat?? Cheers DD
  12. Hi All, I seem to remember that Alan Wright designed a canal boat many years ago. I think it was featured in "boating NZ" He also wrote some articles on canal boating in France Does anyone have a copy, or remember the boat? We have just finished a weeks canal boating in Burgundy and it was brilliant! Many thanks Dr Dave
  13. Hi Fish, Yes I ran a Gennaker off it - it worked really well for a cruising boat. The design doesn't have a bob stay and was from Ray Beale, who was great to deal with. Sorry - I'm not sure what the timber was - however Ray will know Hope that helps Dave
  14. I bought a Beale 37 ("Dreams") way back and did a major refit on her (including a prod and new rudder) and renamed her "Entropy". I owned her for 9 years and she was an excellent boat. Great load carrier for cruising and surprisingly quick, we cruised her up and down the Northland Coast and only sold as we moved to OZ. The new owner also spent lots on her including removing teak deck and replacing with glass/ply. He also won the coastal in her some years back I see she is for sale now on TradeMe. Certainly worth a look I have raced to the Islands in 1104's twice in the late 80's/90's and w
  15. We spent 6 weeks there in the 90's and loved it. I thoroughly recommend it We went on a diving/cruising trip It has amazing diving/fishing/scenery and the locals are friendly and helpful. A 7kg (yes kg!) cray the biggest we caught from memory Obviously it is isolated and can be windy/rough so you need to be prepared and self sufficient. As Booboo said not many "any weather" anchorages so our plan was to sail to deep water in a severe storm - however we didn't have to My plan is to return again in a few years time as I cut back on work Go for it Dave
  16. I previously used Musto for many years however felt the quality is not as good as it used to be. Their early stuff was much better (IMO) I now use Helly Hansen and find it excellent There is an ocean range and a coastal range Their website is https://www.hellyhansen.com/en_us/mens/jackets/sailing-jackets Cheers Dr Dave
