About this BURNES SOUTH COAST ONE DESIGN SLOOP
26ft. SOUTH COAST ONE DESIGN BERMUDIAN SLOOP – Burnes of Bosham 1963 – Exceptional – Lying: Sussex
The South Coast One Design needs little introduction as one of the most successful yacht designs of the mid 20th Century. In 1955 a group of Island Sailing Club members approached Charles Nicholson to design an inexpensive fast one-design cruiser/racer. The first six boats built by Lallows of Cowes all competed in the 1956 Round the Island Race winning the first six places overall. The SCOD, as they became known, proved to be all that was wanted as a one-design and in all, over a period of about fifteen years, 106 boats were built by various boatyards, mostly on the South Coast. The Burnes built boats are now particularly sought after and much cherished by enthusiastic owners and members of the thriving South Coast One Design Association.
ARDOYNA was commissioned by B S Lidington of Ardoyne, Haslemere, Surrey in 1963, SCOD number 80 built by Burnes of Bosham, West Sussex. She was stationed in Bosham and cruised and raced in the Solent in Lidington’s ownership which continued through to the mid-1970s.
