Another Pathfinder has been launched. This time it is Perry Burton of Newfoundland, Canada (what a great part of the world that must be for sailing!) launching Pikake. Perry has a great blog about the build, see it here. The boat looks wonderful. If I'm reading his story correctly he completed the boat in 11 months (I thought I was fast at 20 months), and part of that included removing a stairway and door frame at his house to get the hull out of the shop.
I think it is great that John Welsford has Pathfinders sailing from Newfoundland to New Zealand. I'm not sure how many are out there sailing right now, I do know that more are being built. I've heard of the design under construction in Texas, Virginia, British Columbia, the Caribbean and Australia. It's certainly a compliment to John that the Pathfinder is making a name for itself around the world. Congrats John. And congratulations to Perry. Best wishes for some great adventures.
