Oh sorry, yes, she's one of Manfred Curry's boats. A 10sq.m class from 1927. Some really advanced features, and some plain odd. The rudder is in front of the gybing cetreboard, and its a bipod mast with the sail set between. But a super, low aero drag hull.

Very nice. Sadly 18s seem to be declining but they are lovely boats.
