phrase "Gentleman's racing yacht" is, perhaps,
most aptly suited to this jewel of a yacht. Whilst a Gaff
rig she does not demand the sinews and muscles of other
yachts of her era but does revel in the stronger winds and
can give many a larger yacht a surprise at the finish line!
In 2001 at the 'America's Cup Jubilee Regatta she came 2nd
in her Class and she will be 'performing at many more
regattas in 2005.

for Day Sailing and racing for up to twelve guests she can
be booked for 'week long' events but you will need to be
'Shore-based' for the night-time; this has the advantage of
giving the crew the chance to have her in top condition for
you each morning.
