I was invited to the Freshwater Boatyard by its owner, Mark Humphrey, when we met at the St Mawes Sailing Club. What a wonderful place this is to live and work, by the beautiful Percuil River and Freshwater beach. The working boatyard is not generally open to the public, so it was a great privilege to chat to master boat builder, John Leach, in the workshop.
My first chat with Gawain and John, at the Freshwater Boatyard, on the Percuil River, near St Mawes.
A chance to look at the St Mawes One Design that John had originally built and was now renovating.
