    This one-man project - a documentary record of those who have made a significant contribution to the knowledge, understanding and perception of the Junk Rig - is successfully underway thanks to Graham Cox. His superb articles can be seen here and in JRA Magazines 62 onwards. He hopes to produce a new article for each magazine until he or his laptop expires (his words)!

    Just noticed that his latest article from Magazine 64 hasn't made it to the web site yet.

    Hi Graham,

    I'd like to nominate Allen and Sharie Farrell to the JR Hall of Fame (assuming they're not already in!).

    In their last engineless boat, CHINA CLOUD, they inspired JR in BC, Canada and beyond.

    Here's a link to a short post I wrote about them, with further links to books written about them and some internet resources (in the comment section).

    Thanks for putting this project together!

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for your comments.  Nominations and other information will always be very welcome.  Allen and Sharie Farrell are certainly on my list.  I have a copy of Sailing Back in Time and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I have long been an admirer of Allen's artistic boatbuilding skills and his painting.  The project will take some time as we are publishing three profiles a year but should eventually have a significant folio.  Eventually I will get to the contemporary characters of the junk rig world, so watch out!

    Thanks Chris. I'd forgotten that.

    David, could you please extract the relevant pages as a PDF and I will upload.

    [Webteam edit: Received and uploaded. Thanks, David.]

    Webteam update: Chris Gallienne hopes to interview Mike Ellison soon, and to pass notes on to Graham Cox re the Hall of Fame.

    Mike has been sent by email and has confirmed receipt of a series of questions compiled by Graham Cox and Chris Gallienne and is ruminating on the answers, which will form the basis of another Graham 'Hall of Fame' article.

    Mike has responded and his answers have been forwarded to Graham. I will not spoil Graham's article by repeating any of them here. One of them (probably unpublishable) contains an interesting insight into the temperament of a certain bespectacled circumnavigator.

    Oh, I think I might sneak in a carefully-worded, humorous reference to the matter of the bespectacled gentleman.  His temperament was well known and commented on elsewhere and is a part of the folklore of the OSTAR.  Thanks for your efforts, Chris.

    Looking forward to reading this one.  Mike Ellison deserves to be better known and appreciatd.  I met him several times in the 70s when we had Stormalong and were building Badger.  Perfect manners: he always pretended that he recognised us!
