Following a period of ill health and a realization that ‘you only live once’ Keith McIlwain decided that he needed a change in direction in his career. The Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis gave Keith the skills and confidence he needed to build ‘Daydream,’ his 20’” Golant Ketch, using epoxy resin.
How did the project come about?
I decided I wanted a trailer sailer that I could sail around the coastline of the South West of the UK or trail to new sailing grounds as time and funds allowed. So the Golant Ketch, designed by Roger Dongray, was my go-to choice.
