Reynardine : Gaff Rigged Wooden Delight From The 1970s
Reynardine is a yacht of considerable interest for although built in the mid 1970s at a time when GRP was all the rage, she's a wooden boat and Gaff Rigged too. Jon Wainright, author of Only So Many Tides cruised in Reynardine to the Baltic. She's currently (May 2021) up for sale with MJ Lewis & Son for £29,500.
