Over the years many owners of Shipmans have taken some amazing journeys around Ireland and beyond. Take a look at some of their stories in the Cruising section of the site including Sybil's trip to Scotland, or Joe Slim's Iona Pilgrimage.
With racing cancelled one Sunday morning Shipman owner, Neil McSherry, decided to whip up a short video to showcase why the Shipman is such a great boat to sail! The video was featured in Afloat Magazine an article titled "Old Shipman 28s Never Die, They Only Keep Sailing Away...& Then Back Again".
