Ottawa Small Boat Messabout

Jacob Nagle - Tartan 34

Long-time messabout regulars Tim Jones and Jocelyne Monette spent almost a year cruising North Atlantic in a Tartan 34 sloop.
Their boat is named after Jacob Nagle, an ordinary seaman who participated in some extraordinary voyages on the edge of 19 century and described his experience in a diary - the remarcable Nagle Journal.
While qualifying Jacob Nagle as a small boat would be a bit of a stretch by our freshwater-sailing standards, she is not that big in Atlantic Ocean, and their spirit of doing more with a smaller boat is still the same.
