Wooden Boat Festival Hobart 2015

Moored boats at the 2015 Wooden Boat Festival in HobartNo crafting for us this weekend. Instead, we went to Hobart, Tasmania to admire the handiwork of a very large number of highly skilled boatbuilders and designers at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival. The festival was huge, drawing some 200,000 visitors and what felt like almost as many boats, ranging from tiny tenders to massive tall ships.

To keep the theme of textiles, the photo below shows one of the crew of the Yukon doing an emergency sail repair.
