Vashti near Brightlingsea

Originally designed and built for Sir Maurice Laing. The present owner has owned her for the last 19 years and sailed her over 50,000 miles.

"I have made a new Douglas Fir mast five years ago to the original design. I have just re-engined to a 3 cyl. BETA, and put hot/cold running water in galley, heads and cockpit. 'Vashti' will be going to the DCYR('Vashti' is a full VKSJ member), the SYH and BCYC Regattas in 2007.
