Ecume de Mer - quarter-ton cruiser-racer

A production quarter-ton cruiser-racer from the 1970s, the Ecume de Mer ("Sea Foam" in French) is a surprising good small cruiser / racer, with remarkably good accommodation for her size. They are fast, especially to windward, and easy to handle.

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.
