Alacrity pics: Kindly Light
This is Gary Jaggers' Alacrity "Kindly Light". Gary lives in Falmouth, UK and sails his boat on the Fal Estuary, Carrick Roads and the River Helford. Kindly Light is an Mk1. She is also the first Alacrity I have ever seen with a roller furling jib.
Gary took over the boat after his stepfather who had owned her since 1990. She is on regular use however needing some work.
As sailing costs continually increase, Gary likes this small boat's ability to dry out on cheaper moorings and enjoys "to barge his way in amongst the Bavarias and Benetaux."
