I posted about Fastnet yacht Grimalkin back in October last year, so it was nice to get an email from her owner Keith Grainger. Keith has owned her since 2003, fitting her out for both racing and cruising.
After 40 years of sailing the channel ports, Keith reports that "the prospect of another wet and cold beat across the channel or Lyme Bay, has lost some of its allure", a point we fully understand.
As a result Grimalkin is sadly up for sale.
Thanks to Keith for these pictures of what is a boat with a unique history and I understand in good condition for her 32 years.
