Northbridge Junior; A Japanese Build

I wrote about Frank Bethwaite's plywood junior scow, the Northbridge Junior, as part of a post on the sit-on-top dinghies. Last fall I came across some photos on the Web of a new Northbridge Junior built for a Japanese junior. The blogmeister, being one that feels we should encourage junior sailors in home-built dinghies, offers up the photos of the first day launching:

Terrific - love the decorations presumably for the launch celebration

Fantastic! I learnt to sail on a Northbridge Junior (NJ 40, if I recall correctly). Great little boats.
