The Younger Generation
Our friends across the ditch in Tasmania that pull together the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, commission some wonderful short films that provide an insight into the people and vessels that help make the AWBF so special.
We have featured several in the past and todays one is just such a cool, warm, feel good story. We meet Matt and Iefke – a young couple that were drawn together by a shared passion for wooden boats and are now building the boat of their dreams – Tarkine.
Both Matt and Iefke take us on the journey of how they meet, and express in words the reason why we do what we do and why we love wooden boats.
If today is anything weather wise like yesterday – find that spot x in the house and sit back and enjoy this short film.

Amazing there is still young people willing let alone able to want to build something let alone a sailing craft from scratch in today’s world. You have to take your hat off to them.
