Duet : Six Metre Classic For Sale, April 2018
Launched as Anne in 1926, her second owner that same year renamed her Duet. In spite of being recorded as “scrapped” in the Lloyd's Register of 1965, Duet reappears in their register for 1979. She was rebuilt by the International Boatbuilding Training College (IBTC) in Lowestoft in the 1990s. Don Woods bought her in 2010 and Duet has been raced enthusiastically since, winning many accolades. Don also owns the 12 metre classic, Italia. Duet is now (April 2018) for sale with the Sandeman brokerage for £39,000.
