Apparently launched as Weevil in 1937, when she is first Lloyd's Registered in 1949 it's with a name change to Ellandonnan. A brief ownership in 1954 by George Gordon Jackson resulted in another change of name Eriska Of Rhu, but this seems to have stuck from then on. She's passed through the Wooden Ships brokerage twice, once fairly recently (April 2018). She was raced frequently in the 2000s, from her home port of Lelystad-Haven near Amsterdam.
