Constance, photographed a couple of years ago

Dick Wynne recently took his boat Constance built to Albert Strange’s Wenda design to the races, where her slippery form, big rig and heavy keel turned out to be very helpful to her skipper.

Dick has posted an entertaining account of his trip on the Albert Strange Association website.

PS Dick directed me to further photos of Constance – two appear on this page at Sue and Michael Feather’s website (she’s the doubtle ender with the Farrow+Ball style green paint) and there are more on Dick’s Flickr pages.

  1. I've seen this little Wenda replica around, (on the web) for awhile. She is stunning. One of the most elegant designs from Albert Strange, designer of some of the most elegant boats ever. Thanks Gavin and thanks to Dick Wynne and to Fabian Bush. She is a delight.

  2. Gavin, I may have misspoken in calling Constance a replica. The design was never built during Strange's lifetime, and I don't know of any others. Anyone?
