I have just had the privilege of listening to John do a zoom talk to the Dinghy Cruising Association. It was about boat design and John took us through the steps and considerations he goes through when designing his boats.
It was a extraordinary talk and just showed what a greater thinker and designer he is. From the comments it was clearly very well received.
I love the navigator design. I just wish I could do justice to the design and sail Arwen better.
I think the talk was recorded and it will be available at some stage, probably on the DCA website.
If you are interested in boat design or John's designs, this is a talk worth listening to.
When lock down is lifted, I will get back in Arwen and endeavour to sail her better this year. It's understanding sail trimming that lets me down each time. The navigator is an excellent boat, if only her skipper could do better 🙄
