48(Pt2). Leo’s Story (RORC Presentation)

This week we continue with the 2nd part of the Royal Ocean Racing Club presentation. This part of the talk focuses more on my own story before I began working on Tally Ho – from spending my late teens travelling abroad and busking on the street, to my first sailing and boatbuilding experiences, and my journey in a 1947 Folkboat from Cornwall across the Atlantic to the Caribbean.

  1. Hi Leo,
    I’m a retired builder of small wooden boats and I greatly admire your work on Tally Ho. While quarantined with the dreaded virus I’ve rerun all of your YouTube uploads; I never tired of them. Sort of takes me back to my Forties, when I outfitted a Sampson designed motor sailor in Richmond. Ca., while restoring and abandoned wooden sailboat called, I believe, a BB11. Fond memories, thankyou.

    Your videos have been lifesavers during this health crisis.

  2. You have made many, many important decisions during this project.The one that I am in awe of is your choice of purple heart. There are many beautiful woods. The purple heart exemplifies the beauty of a myriad of things; the beauty of the vessel, the beauty of your woodwork. the beauty of the lofting plans, and on and on. A great choice!
    Fair winds and with warm regards,
    Ray McKee
