Ytene Rose is described as a 48ft gaff rigged yacht, built by Harris of Rowhedge in 1904. Extensive restoration is required… See the eBay for sale notice for Yten Rose, andher entry on the Historic Ship Register. I hope she’ll be just the thing for someone, for her sake…
My thanks to Nic Compton for spotting this and posting it on his Facebook page.
After all that investment of time, hard work and money, and facing a big voyage, I guess a ceremony was in order!
My thanks to Chris Brady for this one – though it is old and I gather the Ena is again in need of work. Read about Ena here and here.
PS – Martin Phillips has sent news of Ena’s condition now – see it in the comments below.
