The last Westerly Ful­mar ever built

Yachting Monthly - - LETTERS -

I sold my Westerly Ful­mar, El­gar, in 2014 but I was miss­ing her so much that I de­cided to build another. I wrote to her de­signer, Ed Dubois and ac­quired the line draw­ings.

With my sight not so good, I asked my friend Roger Green­wood for help and mini

was ‘launched’ in Christ­mas 2015 – surely the last Ful­mar ever built, even if she is only 24cm long! Now when I want to go off ‘sail­ing’, I bring out her log books and mini El­gar and I re­live the 18 years we spent to­gether. Not quite the same, but it will do.

Many thanks to the de­signer and the ship­wright for mak­ing my re­tire­ment from sail­ing just a lit­tle eas­ier.
