Sea Scamp : Sighted in Kinsale, July 2018
In July 2018, whist sailing along the Southern Coast of Ireland, I came across Sea Scamp, one of the 200 'Windfall Yachts' taken by British Forces at the end of the second world war as 'prizes of war'. She's been owned since 1984 by a syndicate, through which anyone who would like to sail aboard this classic yacht can do so. For more detail about this and her history, visit the Sea Scamp website.
