Brian Pearson spotted this beautiful 1939.
At 22ft length over all, she is carvel-built and bears the number 43, and is named Curlew.
Curlew was owned and raced by Herbert Woods in 1943 and then sucessfully raced by many notable local sailors, so she has an interesting history – and in fact even has a tropy named after her. Read her history here.
The seller says he saved the boat along with another when they had to come out of barn storage at short notice, and there was a high chance that they would have been broken up and burnt, and intends to sell Curlew to someone who will get her back on the water where she belongs. I hope he’s successful!
