Orwell Corinthian

Well I have to declare an interest here - I am currently completing one of these. Designed in the 1890's by H.C.Smith, it has a stunningly modern hull form. Now built in glass fibre by Nigel Waller, and with some keel modifications by yours truly, this planing gaffer shows what the Victorians could have done with modern materials. Took line honours at Yarmouth Old Gaffers!!

The class rules are drawn up with the express intention of developing gaff rig. Watch this space.
