Luke’s Minnie

Minnie was built on Channel Pilot Cutter lines by Luke of the Hamble in 1893. Originally a gentleman’s yacht, she spent most of her life in the English Channel but for one period of over 20 years based in Belfast around WW2. In the 70s, she cruised around Europe and the Caribbean, before arriving in the USA in 1982. She crossed the Atlantic in 17 days. Under sail she is very comfortable and as safe as one would expect with ten tons of displacement. She has a good turn of speed and has achieved first and second places in the Round the Island Race (Cowes) in the early 1990s.
