Restauration of Taiaut Z38
I am on the way to restore the Classic 6mJI Taiaut Z38.

The boat is in the yard of Josef Martin in Radolfzell, Lake of Constance.

Please let me know if you have or you know of an appropriate second-hand mast/rig and/or sails to equip Taiaut.

I would like to finish the boat for the Europeans 2016 in Brunnen.

Thank you very much and best regards.

The DVD "The International Rule" by Tom Nitsch Yachting Collection

The DVD The International Rule by Tom Nitsch Yachting Collection ©2006 is an excellent presentation of the International Metre Rule from the early beginning to the newest developments. David Elliott (david.elliott@theyachtingstudio.com) contacted ISMA and proposed this DVD. We have looked at it and find that the 55minutes comments, excellent film sequences and photographs are worthwile to look at more than once. Olin Stephens, Dough Peterson, Juliane Hempel and a lot of other insider make interesting comments to the development of the Metre Rule from 1906 until doday. In case of interest contact David Elliott or www.tom-nitsch-images.de. Please see other DVD’s of his production.

Sun Ray: The first 6 meter built to old drawings since 1965

Copenhagen Denmark

Oh what a day...............

For the first time in more than 40 years a classic 6 meter sees the daylight. It's a very speciel day for me and I'm proud of the boat.

Next thing to do is to install all the metal frames, connect them to the oak keel, and then the lead keel goes on. All the inside metalwork is on the way and is designed for the boat. The deck fitting will be polished.

It's really as good as it gets.
