This is the story of our family affair with Chuckle the Nordic Folkboat. 'CHUCKLE' is clinker built with Mahogany planks on Oak frames with Spruce spars. A classic wooden boat. She was built by Harry Feltham in Portsmouth in 1954, one year after the famous singlehanded transatlantic sailer Blondie Hasler had his Folkboat 'Jester' built in the same yard. Perhaps 'Chuckle' and 'Jester' are sisters?

Running with the wind
What can I say, a perfect day.
Sunshine and steady light winds, we caught a fish, 6 nM. 3 hrs. Freyja and Fergus appear to be now practicing the use of there now grown sea legs. A great success.
