Saltwind *

Zyklon (Z4 N°--) Design : Published 1937 


Saltwind found in Northern Spanish port
Miguel Dominguez has been in touch to say that he is the owner of Saltwind*, a Harrison Butler Z4 that the Association last heard of in 1973. Her home port is Santander, a major commercial shipping complex on Spain's northern coast. Miguel has also sent recent photographs that show Saltwind* in excellent condition. Saltwind* had a pink star * attached to indicate she was feared lost. Without hesitation this is awarded to Miguel Dominguez.
The Lloyd's Registers have yielded a pleasing amount of early owner history up until 1973 with Miguel's wife, Consuelo, adding further detail. She also told me that it was D Rocca and Elizabeth that sailed Saltwind* from Britain to Santander. Miguel and Consuelo have enjoyed sailing Saltwind* in Santander Bay for many years but now feel it's time to put her up For Sale. She has been brought ashore and the hull and mast painted. Miguel would like €22,300 for her (about £16,500). Telephone 660 477400 or email
The Cost of Boating in 1963
Jon Craven, who had a share in Saltwind* in the early 1960s recently wrote, “My annual salary in 1963 was £550, the annual upkeep of Saltwind, £700. In spite of a partnership with Simon and Sarah, we could not afford it. After 3 years we sold up”.
