Toucando , Ipswich Yacht Haven
Toucando is a modern GRP gaffer based on a Martin Heard 35’ Falmouth Quay Punt hull, finished by her original owners in Dublin. With bowsprit lowered she is 48’ LOA. Lots of ropes to control gaff main, staysail and jib (occasionally topsail as well). Seven berths below, comfortable with three or four. Great on a beam reach, or downwind. Towards the wind a fair tide helps. Well equipped.
is looking for crew for Cruising
19 - 21 July
Weekend (sometimes long weekend) sailing from Ipswich to East Coast destinations. Crew with some experience and/or RYA training, not necessarily on gaff rigged vessels, willing to share duties aboard (helming, sail handling, mooring, cooking, cleaning). Crew should be conscientious, but relaxed. I select crew appropriate to the passage: the longer and more challenging, the more experienced.
