Ecume de Mer - 26

Owners Comments

Endorsed rating certificate 2014 TCF 0.825

Has won many local club races at Warsash.  2nd in 2 handed Round the Island Race out of 120 boats.  11th overall in Round the Island race out of 1500 boats.  4th in Cowes Week crewed by 5 x 15 year old girls.  Ecume de Mers won the first 3 Quarter Ton cup regattas and so are very welcome on that circuit.

Excellent, seaworthy compact cruising boat that can dry out on its own legs.
