The 1882 Nicholson racing yacht Germaine has been relaunched following a long restoration at the International Boatbuilding Training Centre at Lowestoft. Once she is fully rigged and has her new suit of sails she will sail to her new home in Brittany. After being photographed by Beken, she sailed to the Med in December 1882 and returned in the spring of 1883, passed to Mr Harvey A Dixon, who rigged her as a cutter.
Eventually she returned to the Camper and Nicholson yard, where she was to be repaired ready for the yard’s bicentenary celebrations. Germaine’s cause was then taken up by Patrick Bigand, who acquired her and transported her to the IBTC in 1997 for restoration. The restoration took quite some time, and I gather that she leaves quite a space in the College’s premises, having been there for two decades, but it must be wonderful for the staff and students to see her back on the water. The Leila Sailing Trust is therefore putting out an impassioned appeal: after all their work, can anyone chip in to help them get over the next few weeks, and take the next beg step towards getting this wonderful old lady back to sea?
A replica of the James Caird built by the International Boatbuilding Training College was officially named and launched at Portland on Sunday, 18th March. On landing on South Georgia they then faced a climb over snow- and ice-covered mountains without  maps to the whaling station at Grytviken to raise the alarm. This is the first time both elements of the journey have been attempted, and it will be filmed as a documentary. The replica boat was named after the Hon Alexandra Shackleton, who is patron of the expedition and granddaughter of Sir Ernest.
The original James Caird lies at Dulwich College, London, and so the IBTC was able to take the accurate measurements, offsets and scantling dimensions required for an authentic replica, by kind permission of the college archivist Calista Lucy. The Alexandra Shackleton was built in two stages, as was the original, which started life as an open whaler, and was then modified on the ice after the Endurance was lost.

After inspection by designer Arthur Mursell, a classic Dale Nelson 38 hull was hauled from West Wales to the Cantiere Navale Orsa Maggiore shipyard in Porto Torres, Sardinia, where she was fitted out for service as a 28 knot 'motonave pilota' for the Venice pilot service.


Terry and Monica Darlington were unlikely stars in ten episodes of a long-running documentary series on British TV. The couple beat the Cross Channel hoodoo and cruised over 1800 miles on Phyllis May, from their home in Stone, Staffs, to the French Pyrenees, along with their "narrow dog" - a whippet known as Jim. According to the Daily Telegraph, Narrow Dog to Carcassonne by Terry Darlington is "a rich and winning comic debut, destined to become a classic" and was Britain's top-selling travel book in May 2006.
Terry and Monica, founders of an international market research firm, announced their latest adventure by throwing a party at a wine bar in Stone, Staffordshire.
Indian River is one thousand miles south of Norfolk, Virginia, along man-made canals, river channels behind wild offshore islands and across at least a dozen dangerous estuaries on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
Four hundred and twenty years after Sir Walter Raleigh's explorers came from England to these waters, transatlantic voyages have been simplified.
The Phyllis May was loaded in Staffordshire by Sealand Boat Deliveries and delivered to the Royal Seaforth Container terminal in Bootle, where the Port of Liverpool's famous heavy lift gang transhipped her to a sixty-foot MAFI roll trailer for shipping aboard ACL's Atlantic Conveyor to the quay at Portsmouth, Virginia.
The Darlingtons believe that Phyllis May is the first classic British narrow boat to be cruised in American waters. When planning their first sea voyage Terry said he wanted "a lunatic scheme, a mission from which few return ­ one that people are scornful about - something outside the envelope. If they survive the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, they plan to cross Lake Okeechobee, in the Florida swamps, and navigate to Fort Myers on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. On their American recce, Terry, now 70, discussed problems with an American skipper known as "Captain Rob". According to a plan revealed to friends and helpers at the jazz and wine bar in Stone, the Darlingtons berthed Phyllis May at the remote Owl Creek Boatworks, near Alva, Florida, for shipping back via Virginia on ACL's unique weekly combined roll-on, roll-off and container service to Liverpool.
May 2005: The Spliethoff multi-purpose freighter SCHELDEGRACHT loaded fifty yachts in Tortola, British Virgin Islands, and Antigua. Nick Gates & Co is a traditional workshop based at Thornham Marina, near Emsworth in Hampshire. Set up in 1999 by boatbuilder Nick Gates, the company specialises in the repair and restoration of wooden boats and looks after a wide range of craft, from clinker dinghies, to classic racing yachts, steam launches and gentleman’s motor yachts. Nick trained at the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft before joining the renowned Combes Boatyard in Bosham, where he worked until the yard closed in 1999. Boats being worked on in the yard at the moment include Lady May, a 1930s Camper & Nicholson launch, which came to the yard for finishing and to have its interior put back in, and Girouette, a Hillyard-built boat that has been in the same family for nearly 50 years.
Partially restored by Combes in the early 1990s, she has since been laid up, and is now at Nick Gates & Co for a new deck, interior and engine. Nick also specialises in the Nicholson-designed, 26ft South Coast One-Design (SCOD), and in recent years five of the local fleet have visited the workshop.


This page from the site might be particularly interesting to anyone who has been interested in the progress of Gadfly II – note the strong resemblance. She was later made into a yawl again, and passed through further changes of ownership – later owners were Major Middleton Robinson and Mr HW Whittingham of Goodmayes, Essex.
The topsides were built up by three planks, and then decked-in to leave only a small open cockpit. Sebastian Coulthard, who is due to crew with Jarvis, said that he was really impressed with the build quality and sturdiness of the boat.

Local sailing directions say, "This large, shallow body of water between the North Carolina mainland and the infamous Outer Banks can quickly become a treacherous waterway when winds no stronger than a brisk breeze whip up a short, steep chop." High winds and high sand dunes brought the Wright Brothers to the lonely Outer Banks for their first flight, at Kill Devil Hill in 1903. After six years in North West Europe, this Sparkman and Stephens 40, built in tripleskin kauri by Max Carter at Auckland, New Zealand, in 1964, is seen here on her way from Ireland to Australia.
Working to a joint charter, she cleared the Caribbean on May 17 and arrived in Southampton 12 days later. Delivered by road and fully restored at the International Boatbuilding Training College, Oulton Broad.
The jobs carried out on these boats have included a total rebuild, new decks and coachroof, external varnishwork and mast repairs. As I’ve said before, if anyone builds this little boat I would be delighted to hear about the project. In the early 60s she was found on the banks of the Blackwater by Ann and Peter Christgau, who refloated and cleaned her, and sold her in the mid-1960s. The electrics are all in conduit and waterproof boxes, a bilge alarm has been fitted and Perkins the engine runs sweetly.
Two spars were added, with a third bolted to the keel to add strength and act as a mast step.
Built for the tough Auckland to Suva race, COTTON BLOSSOM has been cruised and raced from New Zealand, San Francisco, Hawaii, Australia, California and Ireland in her long career.
The yachts were avoiding an arduous one month voyage back to Europe on the eve of the Atlantic hurricane season. And even if you sink, or get ill and die ­ with you being so old I mean ­ you will have been the first English narrowboat on the US waterways, and people will respect you when you are gone.
