This is the second Morning Cloud designed for Sir Edward Heath. She is a relatively small boat but met the requirements of the Admiral's Cup. She is constructed of wood and was built by the Clare Lallow yard of Cowes, England and launched in 1971. The boat was quite competitive. Rod Stephens spent the first couple of weeks sailing with her right after her launch getting the bugs out.
Here are the plans.
Here are a couple of nice details. Note the genoa tracks.
And I like the trim tab control shown here.
Interestingly, this is the exact same hull shape as used for the Huisman 41, design #2058-C9, with a cruising deck and interior and built of aluminum. Click here for more information.
