Was that Geordie Kirkpatrick's yole at wan time?
Added by Jimmy Hamilton on 17 March 2009
Yes Jimmy, this was indeed Geordie's yole. When Geordie, Emily and Jean came back tae Longhope they took with them the Pansy. At that time Dr Peace was in the island and he being a very keen sailor he persuaded Geordie to take oot the engine and put his yole back tae sail. The Pansy has been painted green as long as I have known of her, does anyone know of her history, was she always owned by the Kirkpatrick family?
Now owned by Ian McKay, Pentland View.
