Sailing my Paradox and country living

A new Cornish Lugger

2 Comments

Just built in one one of the boatyards alongside the Milbrook Creek and seen north of Weir Quay the next day, after launching.

Sadly I know nothing else about her, but so pleased to see a brand new traditional boat and a fair sized one at that. Must have taken a lot effort and money to build her. Most impressive.

So, that’s three boats of that type in the Plymouth area that I know of. This one, the one moored at Cremyll and the Four Brothers moored  at Milbrook.

If anyone reading this knows any more, I’d love to hear about it.

  1. Hey…I really like your blog. I only came across it as I was looking to see if there was any news of where my old mate Nick Skeats might be. Funnily enough i think the last time I caught up with him was at Millbrook a good 10 years back on a flying visit : ( I’m writing from New Zealand. I came here 20 plus years ago and built a Wylo…But that a long story..anyway if you happen to drift past Nick again please send him my best wishes.

    • Hi Aaron. Thanks for your comment. Next time I see young Nick I’ll pass on your message.

      We run into each other now and again because his sister lives near here and he’s a fellow Citroenist…too.
