Lovely Youtube video of classic Troy racing yachts off Fowey

There’s a high definition version featuring different music here. The film was taken by Troy class racing yacht skipper John Forsyth, who captured his material by strapping a camera to various parts of his boat.

We’re glad he did. My thanks to Fowey traditional boat builder Marcus Lewis for pointing out this one!

PS -Max, who writes the Bursledon Blog has a post on the Troys, and a few nice photos.

    Fantastic – then again I’m somewhat biased towards Troy’s

    Might even get around to buying one someday, but then I’d need to move to Fowey as sailing in that lovely environment is much of the attraction – not a bad plan.
