Ibis is an East Coast Oyster Smack built in 1888 and used for fishing until the 1930s. Afterwards, she was used as a yacht and found in a very neglected state in 1980, on the Hamble River. The Davies family set about rebuilding her; a task which has continued till now. She has been at most of the Brittany and Cornish festivals since 1988 and even across the Atlantic in 2004, skippered by Helen’s son, Spike aged 20! Here, she won the Spirit of Antigua Classics (2005).

Okay, thank you
