This 1930 William Fife design was recreated by Absolute Restorations in Portugal. Her uncompromising beauty is typical for the master of Scottish yacht design. She was launched shortly before the World Championships in 2009 where she was sailed by key members of Team Alinghy, including Ed Baird, Brad Butterworth and Simon Daubney. She went on to win the prestigious Sira Cup and the Neptune Trophy on her first outing. Touchwood supplied all spruce for the racing spars s well as the Alaska Yellow Cedar for the interior sub deck lining.
