This boat was originally owned by Warwick Groves and, at his request, I collected her from his garden in 2005, With only a few minor repairs she was ready to sail again. I sailed her on a number of occasions, wining the odd TVSC pot, and sold her to Max Hatch who then sold her on to Paul Hammersley. She still resides at TVSC.
Although the records show her to be amateur build (four plank stitch and tape) she was actually professionally finished/decked at Jean Gill's Yacht Supplies Breaston by the late Keith Jeffery.

Turned up on Social Media in August 2020 in a very sorry state.
