Local Classics

Just a few classic yachts we're fortunate to have around Bursledon pool.

The first is Clough, built in the 1920's on the east coast, she looks like she's built of teak, her current owners certainly keep her in pristine condition and she has the benefit of a big gaff rig, so she sails as well as she looks.

I don't know much about this double ender, someone suggested that she is an Alfred Westmacott design (famous for the Sunbeam and other keel boats).

Will I ever get my varnish as good as this? Varen as she is named, shows the Clyde Cruising Club on her transom, but is in fact a very local yacht having been built by A H Moody in Swanwick some 50 years ago.
