Last week was spent at the park once again. With the help of the amazing technicians, I launched the Cabanon (named after Le Corbuiser’s little wooden building he built for himself in the South of France – a modest dwelling – it basically means ‘Hut’ or ‘Cabin’ in French)

Aside from torrential rain, thunder and hail, it was a great day and I think we have some beautiful images of the work. Here’s a little taster – the image is Nobby (one of the technicians) releasing me into the wild. Right after this I got tangled in the branches and had to be shunted out onto open water.

Ship launch!

The coracle – she sails, slowly but surely. A pleasure to drift on the upper lake at YSP this week, testing out the sea-worthiness of the coracle before I add building work to it. Happy to say it is watertight and not as difficult as I anticipated, although I wouldn’t like to be out in any kind of wind. Performance is the week after next so I have some construction to get on with!
