Howard Rice's SCAMP is in and sailing

You can check it out on the website, that and other video clips are under the "Media" heading at the top of the home page.

He's going to be living on board for much of the next month, sailing her on Lake Michigan to check that everything including himself is all as it should be, then the little voyager goes in her crate and gets shipped south, a long way south to where we'll meet her in Punta Arenas, Chile.  We'll pull her out of the box and set up the boat and rigging, do the inspection thing with the Armada De Chile and our friend Captain Herrero the boss there.  We'll buy and prepare stores, load her up and test sail her and then, ( gulp, I'll be chewing my fingernails) will wave as he sails off into the cold grey green waters of the Straights of Magellan.
Cameras running.


  1. Hi John, any reason for the very slack luff on the jib?

  2. A valve is a device that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid, really a amazing product to buy.
