The Shannon One Design

Here’s the 1st in a series of three short films documenting the construction of the classic 18′ Shannon One Design sailboat. The boatbuilder is Jimmy Furey of Ireland and he is something of a legend when it comes to hand built sailboats.

The now defunct series, HANDS, was an Irish film series by RTE depicting traditional Irish hand crafts. It’s a great piece of work, almost hypnotic/trancelike in it’s presentation
