SPRINGTIME was built as a racing yacht for Dickie Bird, then Commodore of Burnham Yacht Club. She was sold on within two years to a life of cruising, including an extensive circumavigation in the 1980s. After stranding on rocks in Jersey in 2004, she required considerable replanking to her starboard side.
