History

WANDA is a gaff cutter of timber construction with a Nanni inboard diesel engine model 411HE. She was built in 1930 at Berthon Boatyard, Lymington to a design by Harley Mead. She raced with the RORC during the late 1930s and 1940s as a gaffer when most yachts were converting to Bermudan rig. Despite being sailed hard all her life she has not needed a major reconstruction.
