Wooden Whaler by David Kemp. A fisherman friend helped me join these two derelict cove-boats together to make the WOODEN WHALER. Clinker boats and cove fishing are from a way of live that’s fast disappearing in Cornwall.
Looking at David's art concurs up memories of the wooden sculputers that populated the Emeryville mud flats of my childhood. It's great to see whimsy alive and well in the world, and an artist who shares his work with the public.
They are strange sea creatures who surfers encounter every once in a while out on the water.Recently, they have been spotted together in large schools swimming in the waves. Some photographers have even been seen desperately chasing after sailboats. God only knows why.
I was toying with the idea of bringing back the "Link Of The Day," but quickly threw that one into the trash can because I'm such a lazy so and so. So, let's see how many weeks I'll be serving links, hash browns and eggs (over easy, please).
This week's link is to the The 10-Step Guide to Windsurfing by Bill Prinzmetal over at Cal Sailing. It's a nice little guide (loaded with some good diagrams and photos) of beginner to intermediate windsurfing skills. Check it out if you're interested in learning Windsurfing or want to brush up on your skills.
Your kid won't become traumatized by a lunatuc sailing instructor screaming at her during sailing camp. It's just a about fun.
Versatility is the name of the game. You can throw multiple boards on the roof of your car, so they're easy to transport. You can paddle them on rivers, lakes, bays and the ocean. You can go surfing. You can practice your asanas on them. You can fish from them. You can even put a mast on one and go windsurfing. Clean up is a snap!
