Very attractive Gartside day sailer

Dale S.  sailing his comfortable and exciting 14.5 ft Gartside designed boat. He says the boat is ideal single-handed in 9-10 knots, but is quickly over-powered above that without crew or reefing points...I'm just trying to work out which brand of tiller lubricant he is using in the bottom pic.
His flickr set of the boat in action is here.
