Lutine of Helford

It's surprising what turns up on the midstream moorings in Hamble, you might think that Lutine of helford would be more at home in Cannes or Antigua or maybe even Helford.

Designed by Jack Laurent Giles and built in 1952 for the Lloyds Yacht Club and built by Camper & Nicholson to compete under CCA rules.

According to reports she's fast coming 3rd in class in the 2001 America's Cup Jubilee Regatta, LOA 58 feet and 26 tons.


  1. It's a cliche but "A thing of beauty is a joy forever" - how great to be able to see this beautiful yacht first hand!

  2. She was heading out of the river this morning , looked fantastic also no camera

  3. I love CCA yawls and Lutine is an especially beautiful one. Thanks for sharing Max.

  4. Pardon my ignorance - but is there a Lutine Bell? that is rung at Lloyds every time a ship is sunk?
