Some boat history:

The present owners have owned “Waterwitch” since 1999. In the early years they took part in some club racing but, more recently, the boat has been used for cruising, principally along the south coast and to France. She has only been used around a dozen weekends per year together with the occasional two-week holiday cruise.

A previous owner sailed the boat round Britain.  After that, the previous owner cruised Brittany, the West Country, up to the west coast of Scotland and the east coast of England, via the Caledonian Canal.

The boat has a full service history.
