The Sir Winston Churchill!
The Sir Winston Churchill is a 3-masted schooner, designed in classic topsail style and created to respond to the challenge of entering a British-built competitor in the Tall Ships race. From her launch in 1966 until 2000, the ship was used for sailing training, carrying up to 46 trainees and instructors, and won numerous racing prizes. She has been entirely refitted and converted for luxury cruising, strictly retaining her original beautiful lines and seaworthy nature,
and now accommodates up to 12 guests in 6 luxurious staterooms.

History!

The Sir Winston Churchill, a Camper & Nicholsons design wih truly gracious timeless lines, was built between 1964-66 by Richard Dunston (Hessle) Ltd. She was originally built to
respond to the challenge of competing in a Tall Ships race, at a time where no other English vessel existed to enter the race. Under the patronage of the Duke of Edinburgh and
with funds of public support, The Sir Winston Churchill was launched in 1966 and initially used for sail training. Under the management of the Sail Training Association, she participated and won many racing awards. Now, entirely refitted in 2000, the Sir Winston Churchill makes her presence in the yacht charter market and ensures a genuine unforgettable sailing experience.
