101 Strega

StregaStrega, a Spirit 37 Mk2, was designed and built by Sean McMillan and Mick Newman of Spirit Yachts in 2001, and is one of several 37s which have been built by the yard in Suffolk. The word 'Strega' is Italian for 'Witch', as the beautifully carved witch's head at the end of the tiller portrays.

Having been featured in Yachting World and at the Southampton Boat Show, she settled in Lymington under the ownership of Dr Sandy Fielding, who has enjoyed her ever since. Racing with a regular crew of four, Strega is often seen in the Western Solent, but she has also competed locally in 4 BCYC regattas, 9 Round the Island Races, various double-handed events, and regattas in Monaco, St.Tropez and the Royal Regatta in Cannes where she won her class.

StregaThe BCYC regatta  is always the highlight of the year for the Strega crew, as they get to compete against other Spirit Yachts, admire all the assembled classics, and enjoy the unique atmosphere that this event brings.
