Mailport: January 2013

That's my boat!

We saw in the Practical Sailor November 2012 issue (in the keel article) a picture of a beautiful boat that we happen to be the proud owners of! The boat is a 41 Royal Huisman aluminum sloop, designed by Sparkman and Stevens. Six boats in all were built in 1978 and 1979. The prototype was one of the Morning Clouds of Sir Edward Heath, former UK prime minister. Another of these boats was solo-circumnavigated twice by David Scott Cowper in the early 1980s, the fastest journey ever, both ways.
