Owners Comments

Snowbird came to us in 2010, as the fourth owner. She was lying ashore in Shoreham when we took ownership of her. In the years we have owned her, we have mainly cruised the South Coast of England, taken part in the Classic Channel Regatta and several "Round The Island Races". 

Having researched her history, she was entered the first AZAB (Azores and Back) race in 1975, by N.W.Neal.  

Her next owner(s) were brothers who spent some 17 years racing Snowbird in and around Salcombe, Devon. 

The owner prior to us was a gentleman from Hever in Kent.
