    Built around 2000 whilst I worked as a Technician in the Design Technology section of a local senior school, built at home, but with pieces produced in the woodworking shop, having access to a plethora of workshop equipment!
    Sailed somewhat unsuccessfully back then, I had problems finding sail material for its Bermudan rig, my idea was to convert to gaff style rig, never got around to it, however now with more choice sail cloth wise I might have another go, however my sailmaker died some time ago!
    The major problem sailing was the launching and retrieving, the weight was around 8 - 9 kgs(18lbs), and with age that is probably more of a problem, although here in France there is more attention given to those sort of problems!
    The model won a gold award at a model show in Concarneau in 2003, after which I was invited to join my local club in Chateaulin -- the best move I made!

    Beautiful model - well worthy of a gold award. Looking forward to seeing a sailing video once you get some sails for her!
