Design 1948 - One Ton Cup Series

Here's a stock design for a one-tonner. 11 Boats were built to this design at various yards around the world, generally in the UK, Italy and New Zealand and Australia from what I can see from the files. The boats were constructed of wood.

Boats with well known names like Morningtown and Kerkyra II sailing in England and the Mediterranean and boats like Boambillee in Australia were winners. Although an English boat, Conservative leader Ted Heath sailed his Morning Cloud to victory in the Sydney Hobart Race of '69/70. See my previous post about this design.

Here are the plans.
