030 Swanilda

Owner, Simon Field and Family.

Swanilda, she is named after the lead in Copellia , was launched in 1960 by Berthon for Mr Broom , designed by C A Nicholson under the then recently changed racing rules, she complied as a light weight class2 racer!

She is built of rock elm frames with 3/4 inch Honduras mahogany planking, with a steel frame amidships for strength and to save weight , hence her modest tonnage at 12.7 .built to Lloyd`s classification. She raced in RORC and Royal Southern events with varying degrees of success until rule changes made her out dated and she went into retirement as a fast passage cruiser from 1965.

She was purchased by us in 2009 and taken to Elephant Boatyard where she has completed a keel up nuts and bolts rebuild , including new galvanised frames , new bottom planking and a rework of her interior , and cockpit arrangements, to bring up to RORC spec.She is in fine fettle for her next 50 years .

She will be competing in Classic week and Cowes week and intend to be in Antigua for early 2013.
