Solway Class Sailing Dinghy


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.

  • Year: 1900
  • Location Cumbria
  • Length on deck: 15'
