Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

Hello, 

I'm french so excuse my english, as you know french are very bad at language !

I'm also new in this group and not used to forum.

Let's begin ! 

This summer i had the chance to sail over bretain with 3 friends on a tiki 21, it was the boat of the association we work with, it's a beautiful one, yellow and blue, vintage and so much wharram's spirit ! 

After, we decide to do the transatlantique with this cata, at the time it was essentiel to leave with this one particulary, but yesterday i spoke with the boss of the association who tell me that he can not give me the boat ... 

The project become less real, but i don't want to give up and i'm gonna leave in july as expected. 

I'm searching a tiki 21 or tiki 26, if you heard something, or if you are agree to rent me the cata i search, i will be very happy.

If you have some stories with this kind of boat, some experience we can learn or some advice, it's very usefull and nice !!

Bye :) :)

It's a truly beautiful boat, Marion, and you had even seven people aboard! :)

The most impressive Tiki 21 sailing story is Rory McDougal's circumnavigation around the world. Sailing in the Mediterranean podcast had an interview with him some years ago (pt 1, pt 2, pt 3, pt 4, pt 5, pt 6, pt 7). You can find Rory's comments on this forum.

If I had a Tiki 21, enough experience and plenty of time I would choose coastal sailing instead of a long blue water passage. On Youtube there is a beautiful video of a 98-day trip made on "Saus und Braus". It's pretty inspiring.

All the best for your plans, and be sure to be safely back to share your story with us. :)

Yes it's the plan, we choose coastal sailing to go to Capo Verde and after if we and the boat are ready make this big beautiful blue navigation :)

Please consider that Rory's Tiki 21 is not a standard boat. The hulls are made of strong fibreglass. It has no decks, but netting instead. This is to stop waves from smashing into underside. It has strengthened rigging and sails. I have a Tiki 21 and it is not suitable for ocean crossings. Rory's Tiki 21 is much stronger. 

Be safe,

Ian 

 Salut Marion,

je suis en train de restaurer un T26 à Loctudy. J'espère aller aux Açores avec. Content d'entendre tes projets. Ne te laisse pas impressionner par les avis contraires. J'ai vu Stan à l'AJD il y a 2 ans. Un joli bateau. Je pense que les petits Tikis sont capables de faire de belles traversées. Tu as lu les bouquins de Thomas Firth Jones? Envoie-moi un mail si tu veux discuter.

Je vais aussi mettre du filet entre mes coques et bazarder le cockpit. Je préfère gagner le poids du cockpit et mettre plus de poids dans les fonds des coques.

Thanks Timo for the links to Rory's interviews. I hadn't heard them before.

Cheers

Salut ! 

je serais super contente de discuter de ton projet, et puis j'avais aussi beaucoup de questions quant à l'aménagement intérieur pour vivre au mieux et les améliorations techniques et de stabilité pour assurer notre sécurité. Je ne sais pas si j'ai le droit de mettre mon mail sur un forum mais bon : marionledier@hotmail.fr .

Au plaisir de te lire !

Marion

thanks for your advertising Ian, i will be safe :)

And for the moment i don't have any boat for this project ... so ..

Cheers !

Bonjour, 

D'abord, les Fançais ne sont pas si mauvais que ça en langues étrangères, mais pour rester dans le débat, je pense que partir à quatre sur un Tiki21 ne serait pas très raisonnable, au regard non seulement de l'espace pour les personnes, mais aussi de celui nécessaire pour la vie, eau, nourriture, produits divers. 

Pourquoi ne pas essayer de trouver deux T21 (qui se négocient courament autour de 5 000€) et naviguer de conserve? 

En tous cas, bon courage, 

Salut de Hong Kong!
