“My Father, James P Stove, was the radio wireless operator (‘Sparks’) on the yacht ‘Rosalind’ for the first part of the expedition in June 1936 from Glasgow to Leith, crossing the North Sea to Cuxhaven and then through the Kiel Canal to the Baltic.  The Rosalind was berthed at Gdynia while the camera crew went to make a film of Warsaw.  On the return sailing across the North Sea severe storms were encountered which caused some damage and necessitated repairs in Leith.  The round the Word expedition was abandoned.” Information courtesy of James Stove.

1948: Sold to Lt. Col C C Morrison who sailed her around Spain. ‘Rosalind’ subsequently went into Spanish ownership, was renamed ‘Rosalinda’ and underwent considerable modernization – a ketch rig with her bowsprit and bumpkin removed.

Restored in 1996/7 in Barcelona, Spain.
