Boat building

Allow me to add some information to the note on boat construction at Manoel Island (Pursuits, May 7).

The boat mentioned in the article and which had won the race organised by the Royal Malta Yacht Club was the third one built of the type. A friend of mine – Joseph Baldacchino – was involved in the manufacturing of such boats. At the time, he was an acting chargeman at the ’yard. He had also made a model of one of the boats and I am enclosing a picture of this Calypso model.
