Notes

Commissioned by the Royal Alfred YC, and Dublin Bay Sailing Club in 1933 and completed by 1938, though none were delivered until the end of WWII.
In 2005, though many were still in sailing condition, nearly all were sold to a group of classic sailboat enthusiasts in France for restoration. Progress was hindered by financial difficulties, though one damaged boat was actually torn apart in order to insure the accuracy of an entirely new re-creation.
(As of 2009, The organization, ‘Villefranche Classic Sailing Limited’, has apparently disbanded.)
