Watch the sailmaker at work in Simon’s video

We posted here on Saturday about sailmaker Steve Hall’s visit to Cambria at Gravesend to repair the topsail.

Film maker, Simon North, was there and has now published this great video of Steve at work.   Not only does it show his great skill, but he talks about his life as a sailmaker.   He tells us that it took a bit over three months to make the sails for Cambria, and that he has been sailmaking ever since leaving school.

It even has my own dulcet tones asking a couple of questions.
