Built and sailed in Hamburg she was taken by British soldiers and sailed back to the UK at the end of World War I.

The previous owner, Alan Glover, bought her in 1981 in Cornwall and rebuilt her on the River Fal before sailing her to Holland.   They sailed Newhaven to Eidmouden in 27 hours! He lived aboard her for about 15 years!

There may be a copy that was built in Cornwall that was very fast in light airs.
