The life of N1000 Stimulus. Design: Mark 2, designed by: Ian Proctor in 1952

Chris Barker

I bought N1000 from Borwicks of Bowness Windermere in approx 1964 and sold her about 1969.  In the 80s I saw her for sale in the Yorkshire Post but have not heard anything since.  Whilst I had her I redecked her, changed her centreboard from a metal one to a wooden one and bought new Ratsey Teryline Sails.  Would like to know where she is now.  She was originally owned by Ian Proctor, is one of his designs and took part in the nationals in approx 1952 soon after she was built. My e-mail address is


Stimulus was based at Ripon sailing Club for a time in the early 1970's. She was in vgc at this point ine time. Does anyone know any thing about her after this?? How did she appear in the north of England? After all she had such an historic sail number in sailing with an excellent record.
