Watch Leo Goolden as he brings back the 47’ teak-planked TALLY HO to the glorious gaff cutter she was when launched over a hundred years ago in England. This vessel, designed by Albert Strange, lies under a shed in Sequim, WA, that Leo built next to the shop/apartment he rejuvenated—helped out occasionally by Poncho the parrot and Brian the dog.

The backstories, and there are many, can be found on Leo’s website, his Facebook postings, and on the Albert Strange Association’s TALLY HO pages.

In addition, Leo wrote a piece on TALLY HO for SOUNDINGS Magazine – “Tally Ho, Adventure! The Quest to Put a 1927 Fastnet Winner Back on the High Seas”.

Leo’s back galivanting around Europe, but instead of his usual radio silence (besides small social media posts, of course), he’s sharing the presentation he made for the Royal Ocean Racing Club in London. The RORC began with the Fastnet Race, which TALLY HO won in 1927.

Despite some audio difficulties (we’d recommend following Leo’s instructions and turning on closed captioning) it’s a nice look at TALLY HO through the years, from speedy pilot cutter to well-loved yacht to neglected fish boat.
