REGATTAS 2009 - 2018
Under present ownership, KELPIE has competed at classic regattas ranging from Oslo Fjord via the Clyde and Cowes to Saint-Tropez. Through 2017 and 2018 - working closely with German classic rig designer and naval architect Juliane Hempel, carpenters and spar builders Manos del Mar, Palma de Mallorca and Ventis of The Netherlands, and Guido Cavalazzi of North Sails Italy - KELPIE has been highly successfully yet sympathetically optimised, and sailed to perfection by her crew of mostly friends and family. Her 2018 results speak for themselves, and her crew consider her “the fastest gaffer on the water!”
