More Tiki 38’s On The Water!
Hi all , I’m back after a super relaxing break in Portugal and now I must pay the price! So much work to do over the next few months I don’t know where to start!
Its been all go elsewhere in the Tiki 38 world over the past few weeks. Martin Hivon now has ‘Al Raso’ on the water and there are some great photos on his website, also, in the past couple of days, Jacques Pierret has launched ‘Pilgrim’. His son Alexis shot a fantastic video of the whole event and I’ve embedded it below for those that haven’t seen it. I confess to having a lump in my throat watching it, Jacques has worked for 5 years with a small budget to get ‘Pilgrim’ built and I feel a close affinity with him. Equally Martin has worked hard to finish ‘Al Raso’ not least as he had to finish one hull completely before clearing the shed and starting on the second! I can’t imagine that. These guys have set a fine example of what is possible and I’m proud to follow in their footsteps. Another notable event is the departure of ‘Aluna’ from Hawaii bound for the Polynesian Islands, fair winds to Beat and Beatrix. Look out for news of the voyage on the Aluna Blog
