The best way to contact me is by email. My primary email address is
and I try to read messages on a daily basis, wherever I am in the world. I ALWAYS reply to genuine emails, so if you do not get a reply within seven days then I am afraid your email will have disappeared into the "cloud" and you should resend it. Having said that, I normally only answer emails during "office hours" Monday-Friday 9am - 5pm
My office and business are based in the UK and all paper plans are sent from there. However I am only in the UK for a few months every year. That is partly because I go sailing whenever I can, but also because I now spend much of the year in my summer-house in British Columbia, Canada. Having said that, we are only visitors to Canada, not residents, so can only stay 6 months in a year. We have found May-Oct offers the best sailing weather, so not surprisingly, that is when we are there!
In my absence the UK office only opens once a week, when paper plan orders are sent out. Thus the best way to contact me is by email.
When you email me please say where you live, and what you want to do with the boat you plan to build, etc. The more information you can give me the better I can help you decide on the boat that best suits your needs.
All snail mail should be sent to my UK office: Woods Designs, Foss Quay, Millbrook, Torpoint, Cornwall, PL10 1EN, UK
(NOTE: all cheques should be made out to Woods Designs, not to Richard Woods) Please use your regular email to send any attachments. Thank you
