This week we continue with the 2nd part of the Royal Ocean Racing Club presentation. This part of the talk focuses more on Leo's own story before he began working on Tally Ho – from spending his late teens travelling abroad and busking on the street, to his first sailing and boatbuilding experiences, and his journey in a 1947 Folkboat from Cornwall across the Atlantic to the Caribbean.

This episode is a little different from usual – it is part of Leo's recent presentation about the Tally Ho project at the Royal Ocean Racing Club in London. In this part of the talk he explores Tally Ho’s history, beginning with her designer Albert Strange, leading on to her Fastnet Race win of 1927, her collision with a reef in the 1960s, and her transformation from classic yacht to commercial fishing boat and back again.
