I've been living in New Zealand since 2010. I spent the first 2 years in South Island and sailed up to North Island for a JRA junket in 2012 and I've been based here ever since. In 2015, I took it into my head to build a boat, because Fantail didn't really suit me. It will be good to have a new boat, requiring minimal maintenance in my dotage. So, for the moment, my blog is more about Boatbuilding with Annie Hill. It’s a long job: I can’t wait to be sailing the boat I’ve built for myself.
