We are sad to announce that Charles Wright, who ran the foredeck on Carlotta, has died in his sleep suddenly and unexpectedly at home in London, aged just 24.
January/February 2020: Carlotta is snugly wrapped up for the winter on the R.Hamble with a humidifier to combat the damp, mildew, rust etc. Meanwhile, plans are being laid for next season…
Carlotta – Gstaad Yacht Club Centenarian of the Year
Carlotta is now (April 2019) out of the water in Polruan, Cornwall, for inspection of the rudder trunking for leaks. Let’s hope it is relatively straightforward!
We had about 35 people over the boat at varying times in August. Some young, some not so young, a few well qualified and experienced and some new to the game.
Trials with new sails, made by James Lawrence of Brightlingsea, were conducted in the Solent on 9th July, 2018.
The restored Carlotta was recommissioned and relaunched at the Elephant Boatyard, Old Bursledon, Hampshire, on Saturday 2/6/2018 after more than 43 years in the Western Pacific and Canada.
