A Boat on the Side

Gerard’s Blog

If you’ve seen our NEWS page on the website you will have been introduced to our French builder, Gerard. He’s documenting the building of his Scintilla 24.

Gerard insists that bread is essential for good work and so do we!

I’ve always had a soft spot for Scintillas, ever since I comprehensively beat a new “conventional” trailer sailer in one. Another owner went one further and beat a whole fleet of mixed club boats twice in two separate races.

Gerard, based near Toulouse, will be exploring the Canal du Midi from Gironde which leads to the Bay of Biscay through the famed Canal du Midi out into the Mediterranean. Just the ticket, we thought – we’re badly in need of a cruise in the South of France!
