A rather bad photograph of a rather nice sloop on the river, lovely long overhangs and low profile cabin roof is off it's time.

 In my defense the photo was taken from a kayak hence water on the lens and into the afternoon sun, clearly I need to get up early to get a good photo with the sun in the east.


  1. Looks like a Robert Clark design from the 40s or 50s. Possibly one of his very successful racing yachts of about 40ft. Some built in wood, others, I think, in steel.

  2. Hi Max. It was me suggesting a Robert Clark design in the comment above. Could it be Gypsy Moth lll?

  3. Thanks Patrick, I'm gong to have to go down and have a closer look - if the weather improves anytime that is
