Design 1812 - Whistler of Paget

I am not in the office at the moment so will check on Monday to see if I can find any images of this boat. I like the interesting deckhouse and window treatment of this profile.

The yacht was designed for a member of the Trimingham family of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. She was built by W. A. Souter & Sons of Cowes, England and launched in 1965. The boat was built using cold molded methodology. The stem and backbone are of Canadian rock elm as are the frames and the laminated planking of mahogany. The construction method proved light and quite stiff.

She was design to rate well under the C.C.A. Rule but also rated well under the R.O.R.C. Rating Rule. She made a good showing her first time out and won the Vanity Cup during Cowes Week 1965. She also made a good showing in the Fastnet Race of that year.

Here is the general arrangement plan.
