Robert Hoffman in Poland sailing his Beth Sailing canoe - DIY sailing canoe

He built the boat last winter and has been learning to sail it this summer.

He is a designer himself – for objects on land – so I was really pleased when he decided to build BETH. He has done a nice job.

He has learned that to sail a sailing canoe that most of the steering is done by trimming the sails. He can make the boat tack and steer very effectively.

Anyway – this is by way of an introduction – you can view my video favourites on Youtube and see a bunch of Storer boats in action. There are a couple of clips that are not of my boats, but I have put up because they were interesting.

A final note on Beth. She really is aimed at very experienced sailors. She is the type of boat where you can expect to capsize, gzip
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859- sailing a Laser – but waaaay cooler!

More on Beth here.

On the "round Australia trip" I found myself employed by a tiny business in Adelaide - Duck Flat Wooden Boats in Adelaide.It was an eye opener - It became clear that one could build a boat for a fraction of the cost of current racing boats.My ideas hinged around high performance, easy building, fun to sail and reasonably cheapToday Storer Boats are built in all countries and we have active groups on Facebook for the following groupsGoat Island Skiff Open Goose Storer Boat plans Really Simple Sails
