New member seeking crew

New club member Keith Bennett is interested in hearing from prospective crew members.

Keith has cruised Inspiration, a 1993 Moody Halberdier ketch, for the past 4 years following her purchase and subsequent upgrading in Plymouth.  She has cruised the Scottish West coast and a little farther afield for the past 3 years and over-wintered in Norway in 2016 before returning to Largs for some serious tlc earlier this year.  Keith is now based in Edinburgh and sailed his boat, mostly single-handed, from Largs to Granton Harbour in late July.  The yacht is currently in the West Harbour and will be staying in the water this winter.

Any club members wishing to join Keith, possibly at fairly short notice, for short local cruises e.g. day sail to Arbroath/Dunbar in the first instance and, following on in the Spring, possibly up to Kirkwall and/or EU destinations should email keith.bennett@hestiaservices.co.uk or phone 07811 332392 for a chat.

Inspiration is long-keeled and sails well with new fully battened main and mizzen.  She also has a handy dog-house for protection from the worst of the weather and has two heaters – warm air and a paraffin space heating stove!

Here is Inspiration in Peterhead Marina in July this year.
