To Sail or Not?

When Endeavour was launched she was the first Leigh cockle boat with an engine. This enabled her to get back on the tide no matter what the wind direction or force.

This advantage was realised by other owners and so many boats were modified and eventually engines became the norm.

Question: When we show Endeavour at events, should she just be motoring or sailing?

There is no doubt that she looks excellent either way, but Mike King thinks that, whenever possible, the sails should be up, and she should be gliding along just using wind power.

What do you think? Both Peter Dolby and Mike King would be interested, so get in touch with them and let them know.
