If you like those boats and the whole premise of what they do you should check out The Ancient Mariners Sailing Society at

Ancient Mariners Sailing Society - Home

I do not know if they have chapters where you are, but it might be fun to find out. I wish I was out there with them, but not this year, maybe next year after my contract is done here and I buy the boat I am looking for, I love the classic styling and lines of these boats, and the fact that their owners are putting on this event just makes it better.

I am sure that if you put your mind to it you can find something similar in your area, as long as you are close to the sea...unlike me

A sailor in the desert is not a happy sailor, and no those are not sea cacti...

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
