Originally built by Nigel Waller for Bruce Johnson, Bruce asked Nigel to make it after some great & successful racing in Dave Peacock's Baggy Trousers at an Open Meeting at Weymouth in 1982. It then passed onto Leslie Ross, Barry Jones, Jon Brown and a few others, until relocating (again) to Suffolk in 2007.


Well used initially, it has been un-sailed for the best part of 15 years, however was kept inside and dry. I collected Inca in March 2021 and donated her to Royal Harwich Yacht Club, to build the growing fleet of club dinghies. A lot of the adults who are sailing at RHYC now, grew up there in N12s and it is hoped Inca will provide the opportunity for their children to enjoy National 12 sailing, whilst helping the (re)growing N12 fleet there.


Some photos attached, the first time I rigged her after replacing most of the lines and a lick of paint here and there.
