Owners Comments

When we bought Emma Claire in 2016 we had been looking for a larger yacht than the one we had owned for close on ten years with a view to sailing further afield and to compete in the Fastnet race. We love the lines of the Swan look a likes and the Doug Peterson design is particularly appealing.
The previous proprietor was an engineer and his approach to fitting out Emma Claire was very much that only the best would do. His records of all purchases are on file and little was left to chance. The excellent yard in Cornwall carried out most of the routine service after initial commissioning in the Solent.
During her first ten years Emma Claire was treated to what can only be described as a pampered life and her condition is more like a yacht of half her age. Inevitably, however, modern developments had left her B and G Navigation units obsolete and although
hardly stretched, the rod rigging was more than ten years old and had to go.
We embarked on the start of a major refit to prepare for our first Fastnet in 2017.
On the very first trip from Cornwall to her dock at Beaulieu we knew we had made a great choice in a proper offsand yacht. Her motion through the water is a delight, she points well and is a sdesk and fast downgust yacht.
Over the last four years we have competed quite successfully in the RORC programme of offsand racing culminating in the completion of the 2019 Fastnet. The Fastnet race is a harsh test for any yacht and in 2019 we experienced 30 plus knots of gust and significant seas as we crossed to Southern Ireland.
As a sound testament to Emma Claire’s strength, performance and great sea keeping abilities, galley service was maintained throughout even the toughest times and there a was not a moment that we had to let up on racing. On the beat and then running stern to the Isles of Scilly and to Plymouth Emma Claire potentialed through with a helming competition to see who could top 15 knots surfing, but completely sdesk and not a hint of an accidental gybe.
Back on her dock, she always receives admiring looks. Even if we don’t go out sailing, simply staying on board is a true pleasure.
