Remember the notice I posted a month ago about how you can build your own Scamp with John Welsford himself? This opportunity has gotten even better. Renowned small boat adventurer and Small Craft Academy teacher Howard Rice will also be a senior tutor along with John. Howard will also be available to take participants sailing in the evenings. So not only can you learn to build a Scamp from the designer himself, you can learn some of the tricks and skills of sailing it from Howard. More info here.
A quick look at the Scamp Registry shows that 134 sails have been registered to date. Nearly 20 of them are right here in the Puget Sound area. Sail #131 belongs to Julie, who just started a blog to document her Scamp build. Julie says she fell back in love with sailing while vacationing in Maui, and fell in love with Scamp when she returned. She promptly ordered the plans and just started construction. Julie says she's obsessed, misty-eyed and has a bad case of the "buildies". Welcome to the club, Julie! I know exactly what you're going through! Check out Julie's blog here.
