Touchwood recently supplied the Sitka spruce for the new mast of the breathtaking classic Cambria. The 47m (150ft) tall Sitka Spruce spar will probably be the tallest spruce spar of its kind in the world. The Cambria mast will be built exclusively from 12 metre long high grade aircraft spruce. She carries a cloud of sail, downwind up to 1200m2 (12.000sqft). The new mast is built at Classic Works
in La Ciotat, France and will be ready at the end of the 2005 season.
