Fyne Spirit : New Owner, 2016 : For Sale 2017
The Hillyard Owners' Association reports that, “Our records for the raised foredeck 5 ton Fyne Spirit show she was first based on the South and South West coasts. In the 1970s her owner cruised to SW Ireland and North & South Brittany. These trips generated several Yachting Monthly articles, Passage Towards The Scillies (March 1977), Foray To Fowey (July 1978) and An Irish Interlude (September 1979). Her former owner Peter Larner sailed her single handed to the 2004 Brest and Douarnenez festivals before taking part in the Plymouth Classics - 500 miles and strong westerly winds on the return journey. The new owner Bill Williamson says he will keep her on a mooring off Falmouth.”
