A Yachting Monthly WILD DUCK.

This is a Yachting Monthly "Wild Duck" designed by, Alan H. Buchanan a 20ft, 3 ton Sloop designed for two people, a very user friendly little craft and one of my favourite sailing cruisers I owned one of these in the early 70's, her name "TINALOA" a boat local to the River Medway in Kent, UK. She was designed as an inshore cruising yacht and is very adept at handling heavy weather should you be caught out, and once over on her chine she is very reluctant to go any further a very comforting thought, In the five years I owned her I made numerous trips up the East Coast one trip to Holland and a couple to France.
Picture is by kind permission of the Eventide Owners Club, they can also supply plans for this and other classic craft.
