, in Hiscock's book, Cruising Under Sail, was featured as the example of a yacht designed by Nigel Warrington Smyth for his own use, "....large enough to accommodate three people for a summer cruise
, but small enough to be handled easily by himself and his wife for week-end and day sailing
." She was built by Messrs. Stebbings at Burnham-on-Crouch.
Another was built for his brother and recently I discovered that Black Cygnet
is still sailing in the UK. Peter Robyn
was built in Sydney Australia
and has been in my possession for 16 years, proving herself to be a fine yacht and an excellent sea boat.
Does anyone know the whereabouts of Restive?
We would like to find where she is!!! The only lead I have had is that she possibly was purchased in the UK by someone from North America and en-route via South Africa
