Believed to be a Solway Class sailing dinghy built around 1900 on Lake Windermere. Almost entirely built of spruce including planking, thwarts and transom making her light and nimble. In the same family ownership for many years, her well documented history details many wins in the dinghy racing events on the lake. Structurally appears to be in quite good condition but needs to be totally stripped to bare wood. Gunter rig complete but sails and rigging will need replacing.
Flying Dutchman built in 1960, believed to have been owned in her early years by the designer of the class, Conrad Gulcher. Used as the 2 man Olympic dinghy from 1960 to 1992, there is still a healthy racing fleet of boats in the UK. This example is built of cold moulded mahogany which offers an excellent strength to weight ratio. Complete with 2 sets of sails, road trailer and launching trolley. In present ownership for 47 years, she has been cherished and cared for but now must find a new home
