    Hi guys, first post here



    Just thought I'd introduce the Vagabonds and a Classic to this modern circle. In antigua at the moment. On our way back to the med soon for the regatta season. A short clip of leg 4 of our voyage last year. Hopefully see you out there!

    Love classic wooden yachts. I do have Antigua on my bucket list for a classic yacht race. If you know any skippers who need crew for next year's race let me know.

    Vagabundo, sure thing. I'll be sailing the Southern Ocean this Oct/Nov in a 75ft Clipper. It's not a classic wooden yacht though...love the classic boats. Send me a PM when you get your sail plans ironed out and I'll help crew if needed.

    Heading to UK next month for some sailing too.

    Fair winds - Joseph

    Another Tribute to German Frers snr. And German himself for beating us in the texas shootout we had on the start line in Cannes. He was racing another German Frers Snr "Sonny". A bandit up wind!

    A few clips in order of what happened.
