Yesterday I went to visit my new friend Eddie who lives in the Richmond area and is an avid sailor (here's his building log). He was getting ready to put the last coat of varnish on his new build, Una, an Iain Oughtred-designed Sooty Tern. She is a beautiful open double-ender that barely makes it diagonally in the double-car garage. At 19'6" the Sooty Tern is a stretched Arctic Tern. Narrower that the Caledonia Yawl, I am interested in how she sails. Maybe I'll get the chance to find out someday!
