Sailing my Paradox and country living

The Maxwells in England

Leave a comment

Glen Maxwell was one of the original pioneers of Paradox sailing, who built the third boat of the fleet -the beautiful  Zoe – many years back.and is a very distinguished figure in the Paradox world.

He’s here in England with his wife Nancy to sail his recently bought boat along the South Coast to Plymouth and  eventually.take part in the Jester Azores Challenge.

He hopes to be the first American to participate.

His boat is a junk rigged Kingfisher 26 which he found in Southampton

Glen and Nancy joined me for a social evening along the Dorset coast last night. We had a very nice time in a few pubs , a nice meal and chat.

They like pubs a lot…. Not sure how that is going to work out for sailing the Atlantic though.

Thanks Glen and Nancy. It was lovely to meet you. A brilliant night.
