It started with a conversation at the Suffolk Yacht Harbour Classic Regatta in June this year.
In the bar.
Peter Smith, art editor for Classic boat was taking part with his 8-ton Gauntlet Bardu. We got into conversation about boats (what else) and Atalantas. We suggested that the Atalanta would make a good subject in the Classic Boat ‘Affordable Classics’ series. Peter agreed, gave us a contact and put in a good word.
Its not that the article carries anything new but rather that it puts the Atalanta name out in the ‘public’ eye.
You can read the article in the November 2019 edition of the magazine (and we hope at some time in the future on this website).
One thought on “November 2019 Classic Boat – Atalanta as an ‘Affordable Classic’”
Further to the article in November the December issue of Classic Boat includes an endorsement of the Atalanta’s capabilities from James Wharram.
Commenting on the November article he recalls meeting the crew of Aku (the boat that set off around the world) in Las Palmas.
The letter includes a great picture of the skipper of Aku showing James how to use a crossbow for catching fish.
James is very complimentary about Uffa Fox and and the Atalanta.
