Jim Bolland: Spencers, Spinnakers, and Shooters

Published on October 23rd, 2013

“The painting ‘Run to Hope Shoal Light’ was painted by commission and is a vivid memory of my client, mine and many other sailors, from the heady sailing days of the early 1970’s. The scene is Port Nicholson, the beautiful harbour of New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington and a typical fifteen to twenty knots of northerly wind is kicking this small fleet along.” – Jim Bolland

Jim provides a detailed report of the painting and a valued history of Kiwi racing on his A Brush with Sail website.
