This film in Dylan Winter’s Keep Turning Left series captures these 25ft lovelies (and Sunbeams and XoDs, I’m reminded to point out – see the comments) rather beautifully.

Designed in 1946 by Tom Thorneycroft as a possible successor to the Star, the Swallow class was used as a two-man keelboat class in the 1948 Olympics, they are now raced three-up. Stars, of course, are still around, but they aren’t quite as graceful on the water…
One thought on “Cameraman Dylan Winter captures the lovely Swallow Class keelboats”
being slightly pedantic there were more than a few Sunbeams and xoD’s – great film and a great place for watching classic keelboats
