James talks to BBC Scotland. If you thought you’d heard enough of his soft Scottish tones on our Kukri video then think again. This reporter from BBC Scotland joined us today aboard Elinca to talk to James about what we were doing and why. No one (except James) knows what he actually said yet but we’ll let you know if it ends up on telly.
Innes created a small work of art around the helm with a very large piece of Perspex. It does look stunning but also has a practical use. The Challenge yachts had problems with waves throwing crew members across the cock pit towards the wheel with disastrous consequences. Although the cock pit shelter should deflect the majority of the waves coursing down Elinca’s deck this screen should offer one final barrier between our delicate limbs and the spokes.
And for those of you who have not met Elincas rightful owner. Here he is in his natural habitat. Conducting business on the harbour wall in-front of an advert for Wild Blue Ltd.
