Sea Urchin

Sea Urchin is a smaller version of the Ellen, a Gorran Haven Crabber and built by Percy Mitchell in Mevagissey (or Portmellon) around 1936. Sea Urchin has a Spritsail rig, similar to the Thames Barge. It’s an unusual rig for this style of boat, but fantastic for down and up wind sailing. Importantly, there’s no boom so perfect for kids. Also of interest, is the Ganderfied fore sails, as she’s now a cutter with two jibs and small bowspirit. She is owned by Richard Biker and sailed from Mousehole.
