The Swallow (also known as the National Swallow) is a type of one-design keelboat that was used as a two-man Olympic class for the 1948 Olympics. It is now raced with a crew of 2 or 3 in heavier weather..
The Class races at Itchenor and both Cowes Classic Week and Cowes Week.
Swallows are responsive and fun to sail if "wet" with a low freeboard.
Spindrift has been well maintained by being kept undercover in the winter.
She has glassfiber hull and wooden deck.
The mast, standing and running rigging was new in 2015 from Sedan.
She comes with a road trailer and full suit of sails.
The reason for the sale is the owner has decided to stop racing in Aldeburgh where she has been kept for 10 years.
There are around 40 active boats and as a National Class, the rules and affairs of the Class are regulated by the Royal Yachting Association. Most of these boats are named after birds in particular sea birds.
