CARRINA is a staysail schooner built by R J Perkins of Whitstable in 1929. She is of carvel construction, built of teak with oak frames and her current engine is a Gardner 4LW diesel, fitted in 1961. With various owners she sailed extensively around Europe and North Africa until the outbreak of World War II when she was de-rigged and stored at Camper & Nicholsons, Southampton.
In 1953 the Staniland family bought her and lived aboard, making 6 Atlantic crossings. Later she sailed to Brazil and spent 3 years on the coast before sailing to the Caribbean for a year and a half, then returning to Europe.
