Lymington Classic

This classic day boat was just leaving it's mooring near the town quay at Lymington recently, I don't know too much about the design or her history. She's normally on her mooring at the top of the Lymington river, apparently she has been in the same family for most, if not all of her life.

It was a perfect day, with fairly light winds at the top of the river. The crew had already raised the main, before they backed her out of the mooring using the Seagull outboard and then sailed her away, it was great to watch. Within moments the outboard was raised, the jib unrolled and they were sailing down the crowded river, clearly having done the whole exercise many times before.
