Re: Cruising an Excalibur 36 ?

I'm part of a syndicate that sails Morgan le Fay out of Poole Harbour in the UK. Been with her since 1971, and in that time she's grown older and creakier just like her owners, but still looks after us very well. There are at least three Excaliburs in Poole, including Morgan, Phaon's Avalon, and Taliesin. About 15 years ago, I knew where at least 25 of the boats were, and managed to get 8 together for a sail in Poole. But I lost touch with many of them; perhaps this will inspire me to look some of them up again....

Re: Cruising an Excalibur 36 ?

By the way, we have the 1963 yachting world annual with all the articles from that year, in it is the original study plans, an article by VDS about designing it, a write up about it, a letter from the first Owner of our boat and the racing results including RORC championship and fastnet. If anyone would like a copy

Re: Cruising an Excalibur 36 ?

Hi Peter. I am also a new Excalibur owner, having bought INO in Holland last summer. We had a lovely sail back to the West Coast of Scotland - up the North Sea & through the Caly canal. She sailed well with no vices at all. Fun illy enough the reason we decided to buy an Excalibur was that i saw Soringo in Kip Marina last summer & really liked the shape ! Good luck with the delivery trip - let us know how it goes. Keen to stay in touch with other owners & learn from them. Best wishes, Steve

Re: Cruising an Excalibur 36 ?

Re sail number K331 - she is mine. CAMELAIRD, currently sailing in the Solent UK, I bought her in 2002 and, like any vintage VdS she is a constant project. That said she has been great and looked after my both I and my family for many years.
