Sistership to Pierrette and Mignon.   For many years this yacht was kept at the Clyde Canoe Club, later to become Loch Lomond Sailing Club.   She was owned by a Doctor, Donald Atherton, who raced her regularly at the club.   The only other comparable yacht in the club was an old yacht named ‘Mina’ (or ‘Minna’).   She was owned by ‘Baldy’ Bates and crewed by his lifelong sidekick, Eddie Paterson.

In the sailing club there still hangs a rather nice painting of both yachts moored off  Inch Moan.

Restored in 1992.
