The Monty was in good hands went it went out on Tuesday morning. On the helm is John Young who first sailed a Montagu whaler in 1951 when he was in the Royal New Zealand Navy and on the jib sheets is Roger Sly who first sailed one in 1956 in the Royal Navy. Roger brought with him some more authentic Monty rigging including main sheets and blocks and mainsail down haul.
