My name is Leo Sampson Goolden. I am a Boatbuilder, Sailor and Writer from Bristol, England.

The Sampson Boat Company is, for the moment, just myself. I sail around the world on various different boats (including my own 1947 Folkboat Lorema), and sometimes have silly adventures, which I write about here.

As well as the blog, this website provides information about some of the work that I do. Please feel free to get in touch with me about anything – my email address is in the column on the right hand side of the page.
