This has nothing to do with Barbara's site, merely a way of getting my White Cloud information accessible on the web - however, you're very welcome to have a look at her stunning work by clicking on the headings to the left.
White Cloud is a 25' gaff rigged yawl originally built in Teignmouth, Devon, in 1912 and was bought, in rather a sorry state, by me, Les Weeks, in 2007 as a restoration project for my pending (2010) retirement from 40 years of teaching teaching Craft, Design & Technology.
Before actually retiring, I took advantage of my school workshops, and the space that they offered, to undertake some of the larger, off boat, tasks. Between 2007 and 2013 I worked up to three days a week to restore the boat at Downs Road Boatyard in Maldon, Essex.
Sadly, with our emigration to Western Australia, White Cloud had to be sold and she now has a wonderful new custodian to take her on the next part of her long voyage.
