The Oaken Yarn is the life of James Aiken aboard a 33 foot yacht in the North Atlantic. The vessel is a platform to explore remote and unlikely people, places and perspectives.
“I purchased the boat and spent some time on a partial refit in Cornwall before setting off and making my way North to Stornaway in the Hebrides. She’s a Tradewind 33 so a solid and very capable vessel, and managable singe handed. My dream is to spend time sailing in the Northern waters, Scotland, The Faroes and Norway, surfing where possible, and meeting and documenting local people.“
