arriving by container

The story of Gleaner, the Lowestoft drifter brought back to England in neatly stacked, labelled parts in a shipping container, then rebuilt, is unlike anything else we've seen. Her return from dereliction is testament to what can be done on a very strict budget if you have the will, the skills, and a good set of friends. Today, she looks much as she might have in her heyday and, pictured on our cover this month, sailing off the Cornish coast with an early morning mist in the sky, she's as regal as any varnished, bronze-bedecked, million-pound restoration. Also in this issue is chapter two of the great solo Caribbean adventure undertaken by our 2018 Classic Boater of the Year – young Max Campbell. He follows Ashley Butler and Leo Goolden…

the last lowestoft drifter

The big old wooden boat looked an unpromising sight as I peered down at her, as she was lying alongside Penryn town quay, on the south coast of Cornwall. Her deck was cluttered with ropes and chain lying in seemingly random piles, and a pair of boat’s legs and a water-filled canoe were scattered to one side. For a few minutes, I wondered if I was wasting my time. This formerly mighty Cornish lugger was said to be the last surviving Lowestoft drifter, rescued from almost certain destruction in Germany, dismantled and transported in parts back to Cornwall, and then painstakingly reassembled on a beach in Penryn. But, I mused, standing there on the quay, perhaps all that was nothing more than a romantic story; perhaps she was more wreck…

the lowestoft drifter

Every year, from the middle of October until the end of December, millions of herring gathered in the North Sea in shoals about 14km (eight miles) long and 6km (three miles) wide. The drifters set their nets just below the surface of the sea, when the herring came up to feed at night, and simply ‘drifted’ with the current. By morning, they’d pull the nets in and sort through the catch. One lucky haul could bring in up to 250,000 fish, and it wasn’t unknown for fishermen to have to throw thousands back into the sea for fear of sinking their boat. By the early 1800s, the type had developed into a three-masted and, later, a two-masted lugger with lute stern, rounded forefoot and clinker-built hulls. The 1870s, when Gleaner was…

PANERAI BCYC REGATTA Curtain call for Panerai Fifty-three yachts entered this year’s regatta in Cowes, the last to be sponsored by the Italian watch maker which has done so much to promote classic sailing since 2005. Fifty-three yachts entered this year’s regatta in Cowes, the last to be sponsored by the Italian watch maker which has done so much to promote classic sailing since 2005. This year, there was a greater focus on authenticity. An independent judging panel made up of CB’s Rob Peake and Steff an Meyric Hughes, naval architect Paul Spooner, NHS UK director Hannah Cunliffe, author and CB contributor Nigel Sharp, and Cowes boatbuilder and CB publishing consultant Martin Nott, viewed every boat in the regatta. The BCYC asked the panel to name the most authentic boats in the fleet. The…

XII PUIG VELA CLASSICA The 12-M duel that took 90 years to stage The 12th Puig Vela Clàssica hosted by Real Club Náutico de Barcelona last month featured an intriguing head-to-head as two pre-war Italian 12m yachts – built ostensibly as period rivals – met on a race course for the very first time. La Spina was the first Italian yacht built under the International 12-M Class Rule. She was built for the Marquis Franco Spinola by Cantieri Baglietto in Genoa and launched in 1929. Her rival at Puig Vela Clàssica was Emilia, Italy’s second 12m yacht, and constructed by Baglietto’s local rival Cantieri Costaguta. Emilia was commissioned by a friend of the marquis – Giovanni Agnelli of Fiat fame – as a gift for his son-in-law Carlo Nasi, and all the evidence…
