Tally Ho is Albert Strange’s design number 96 “Betty”, designed in 1909 for Charles Hellyer, comparatively unusual for Albert, who is best known for his canoe-sterned gaff yawls, Betty was a transom sterned gaff cutter.
The cutter, with its single mainsail and multiple head-sails offers more space in the same length as the canoe yawls and Charles Hellyer needed her to fit well into his home harbour.
She took part in the 3rd Fastnet Race in 1927 and in testing conditions finished second over the line to the 30 ton Alden schooner ‘La Goleta’, but won the Fastnet Cup on corrected time.
