It occured to me that I should have been giving more to this forum but have let my busy nesses keep me doing other things.
We are presently finishing the restoration of a 40-foot ketch that my partner and I purchased at Marina Smir on the North coast of Morocco. Our plans are seemingly changing with the wind as we first had thought to do the North coast of Africa to Tunisia, thence on to Turkey. Then, we were just going to go to Tunisia and back to the UK. Now, we are going to gunkhole southern Spain, explore the North coast of Morocco and maybe go up the French canal system back to the UK. That's what sailing offers- the freedom to make those choices at a moments notice.
The whole thing does have a merit which is the study of the actual histories contained in these areas that are not normally more than touched on. Specifically for my interest are the various evolutions of the lateen sail rig within the Mediterranean Basin. This rig is the oldest on earth and is used on every sea throughout this earth. It was probably the first rig to move people from the continent of Africa to populate the world. Just another one of those little things that are the basis for our heritage that seems to have been ignored by most of us.
If anybody is interested in our wanderings let me know and I will keep you posted.
There is also a programme that we started in London that is restoring an Egyptian Dhow replica and they need assistance if anybody is interested. As stated in my latest response to the Ghanaian dive project, none of the youth in the Know YourSelf! Programme know how to swim.
