"I found my pulse beating with suppressed excitement as I threw the mooring buoy overboard. It seemed as if that simple action had severed my connection with the life on shore; that I had thereby cut adrift the ties of convention.

The unrealities and illusions of cities and crowds; that I was free now, free to go where I chose, to do and to live and to conquer as I liked, to play the game wherein a man's qualities count for more than his appearance."

Maurice Griffiths, The Magic of the Swatchways.

 Newsletters and logs

We had many back editions to view here, your logs, (in one of our designs only please!), and articles are still wanted. 

Please take the time to read the pages explaining why we formed, the 'introduction'  pages.  We are owners and friends, supporting owners! 

See the advice page or the hints and tips!  We offer, real practical help to all those  owners of the Y.M. sponsored designs, and to the owners of other craft by the same designers.  We have a team of experts who have built their own boats, and are able to answer most questions regarding the problems one might encounter at any stage of building or sailing.  We are printing many hints and tips, from owners, some new, some you may have seen before, but all relevant. 

The Eventide Owner's Group  has a bright burgee to fly!....   See the Burgee page

See also the donations page for the state of our finances and how to keep this page going.
