Arctic Tern

In Festival Boats 2018

This boat is a 19’4″ stretched version of Iain Oughtred’s Arctic Tern. She features an enlarged gunter sloop rig with decks and bulkheads fore and aft. Originally designed at 18’2″” in length, the owner preferred the longer length of the Caledonia Yawl, and the narrower beam of the Arctic Tern. Thus this is a hybrid of the two.

Nathaniel Wilson of East Boothbay, Maine made the lovely mitre-cut sails. This boat is primarily used for day sailing on Lake Washington so auxiliary propulsion is handled by oars. With the generous sail plan they are rarely required. Built in 2014 by Tom Regan of Grapeview Point Boat Works.”
