‘Stirling’ won the ‘one design’ Round the Island Race in 2003 and 2nd overall in class. She has also had good results in many Cowes Week and is sailed/raced regularly off Cowes in the Island Sailing Club Races. She is now berthed (2009) at Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club Marina. We are intending to do the Cowes Classic Week and Cowes Week again in 2009.
‘Sterling’ is in excellent condition – 2 keel bolts were drawn in 2005 and found to be perfect.
She has a fixed 2-bladed prop and 10hp Yanmar diesel engine’.
