The Interview - Part 2 with Neil Hawkesford - The Gleda Project

    • Get a copy of Neil's book A Foolish Voyage here

      It is a fantastic read.  Neil tells the story of sailing the south

      coast of the UK in an 18 foot sailboat.   You really feel that you are

      along for the ride.  It will make you want to go back to your early 2o's

      and go on a big adventure!

  • Go to Neil's web site The Gleda Project

    to see all the details of him building his Wharram 38 catamaran and his

    current cruising blog.   Neil's catamaran build took eight years. In

    the interview, Neil speaks about not just building a boat, but building

    his future lifestyle.

  • For a female perspective on Gleda's adventures, go to his partner Gail's blog Landgirl Afloat.
