About Paul Briggs
Having had an interest in joining Boatshed Lincolnshire for a number of years but Lincolnshire being out on a limb, so to speak, I finally managed along with my partner Ann, to join Tim Kingston as a team.
I've had many years of sailing, first as a boy of 12 on the Norfolk Broads and then as a teenager out of Lymington into the Solent by Lysander and in the last 12 years I've been sailing my Ohlson 35 which is berthed in Grimsby, where we are members of the Humber Cruising Association.
In 2009 I took part in the Clipper Ventures round the world yacht race on the Hull and Humber, starting at Gosport ,onto La Rochelle and then to Rio de Janeiro, it was quite an experience !
Ann has always had a love for boats and water, but has only been sailing for the last 8 years. Together we have been renovating a beautiful 1933 wooden sailing yacht which we are looking forward to sailing on the Broads.
