Rebecca's Page

Rebeccca was built by Terry Heard at Tregatreath between 1976 and 1978.  She has been used for family sailing, holiday cruising with a bolt on cabin top, and for racing since then.  She has spent many holidays in the Scillies, and in Brittany, attending many of the Bretton festivals for traditional craft.  She first visited the Douarnenez festival in 1986.

Last season was a very successful one for us, winning Falmouth week and the Line honours cup, and coming third in the Championships.  Rebecca is the most heavily handicapped boat but, because of our success, we are likely to be even more handicapped next season!

The crew for 2011 was Phil Slater, Jilly Slater, Ivor Martin, David Brunyee, Tan Lumby, Neil Capper and occasionally Ed Brunyee, Vee Slater, Danny Miller, John Calvert, David Gorrod, Ron Medlyn and even Mark Sansom.


Yo ho ho, the wind blows free
Oh for the life on the rolling sea
