    This year we will have owned 'Footprints' for a decade so it finally seems time to move onto a different boat project. We have really enjoyed our time with 'Footprints' and have had many wonderful sailing holidays including our voyage to New Caledonia in 2013. 

    So if anyone is wanting a well designed and built, and offshore proven junk rig yacht please contact me for details. You can also find photographs in my member profile. Asking price is NZ$ 76,000. 

    You can find my local New Zealand listing here.

    I hear a rumour that your next craft may have two hulls?  Is this correct?

    I'm sure you'll have people knocking the door down to buy your beautiful ship - the pride of the NZJRA fleet.  I so hope they don't take her away from NZ - I would miss her style and dash at our junkets.

    I am looking at a couple of possible boats at present. But isn't it funny that after all these years with a junk rig I find it very hard dealing with the concept of going back to a bermudan rigged boat, so I hope to not have to go down that route.

    I don't find anything at all odd about that.  All that fuss, noise and tension, every time you tack.  And don't even mention reefing ... And junk rig is more relaxing for those on board who aren't involved with the sailing, too.  Not many people go back to pointy rigs once they've got used to junks.
