The LBT has a long history with the sailing whaleboat Capricornia. She had a major refurbishment in our shed about ten years ago, and has subsequently been involved in many regattas, school events and Tawe Nunnugahs. Her owner Piet Lundstedt is offering her for sale, and the committee is disposed towards making him an offer for a number of reasons.

  • She is a very good sailing boat both for beginners and experienced sailors.
  • She is a valuable part of Tawe Nunnugah.
  • She comes with a large trailer which is also useful for our other whale boats.
  • She can be stored on the trailer.
  • She should pay her way: based on previous raids, she will provide a return on investment within a reasonable time-frame.

If you want to know more go and have a look at her (she is tied up on the square pontoon next to the Wooden Boat Centre), come for a sail on Monday evenings, or speak to your friendly committee member.
