She is very much in original condition. Can be sailed as is, or treated to a first class restoration as she deserves. More recently she competed in the 2009 Six Metre World Championships.
She is the last remaining medalist from the 1924 Olympic Games, and would be shining star for the Centennial Anniversary of the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.

A 1925 Alfred Mylne design Gometra was built as a private yacht for a retired Royal Navy Rear-Admiral for British coastal waters. Gometra bears the name of a small island off the coast of Mull. She began her racing career in the American Firth of Clyde based in Port Bannatyne.
In 1930 Gometra was purchased by Lieutenant William Blaine Luard, a talented sailor, navigator and writer who praised the virtues of sailing Gometra in his book “Where The Tides Meet”.
In 1939, at the outbreak of World War II, Gometra was chosen to carry the Norwegian gold reserves to safety in Canada. There she was bought by the Commodore of the Nova Scotia Royal Yacht Squadron and sailed for years.

A 1923 gaff cutter designed by J W Pickering of Snails Bay, NSW, Australia for Arthur Muston. Muston was a well known figure on Sydney Harbour, and one of a group of yachtsmen from the eastern suburbs who formed the Prince Edward Yacht Club early in the 1920s.
The yacht raced for many seasons on Sydney Harbour, winning the Morna Cup, Revonah Cup and Gascoigne Cup at different times. By the 1930s Muston had changed the boat over to a tall Bermudian rig.
In 2006 WINDWARD I was restored back to her original gaff cutter configuration, based on a surviving plan of the rig from 1923. The layout has been revised to be more open with no bulkheads, and almost all of the original timber work and trim has been retained.

Originally named ‘Molita’ she was designed by Charles Livingstone for his own use. In 1920 she had a motor installed and in 1936 the rig was changed to a Marconi ketch.
Doctor Tim Liesenhoff found Molita in Oban, Scotland in 2003 still with her ketch rig. She was transported down to Mallorca and by 2007 he had restored her back to her original gaff cutter rig and sailing under the new name MARIGAN.
