Wooden Ships Comments on these Cornish lug-rigged daysailers

These two boats were built by Norman Benny, the then owner of Pasco’s Boatyard, St Just in Roseland, Cornwall.  They were commissioned by a local outdoor education centre in 1983 and finished in 1984, and have since introduced thousands of Cornish schoolchildren to safe, fun sailing.  For sale preferably as a pair, but would separate.
