Minisail Sprite No.23

Pedro Cristóvão's Sprite

Recently turned up in Portugal - No.23 was bought just for the parts and the hull sold for scrap. Luckily Pedro realised that the hull was too good - "A story that had all to go wrong, because I bought the hull to make a bed for my 5 year old daughter, but I couldn't destroy this piece of art" - he was able to recover the rest of the original parts and reinstate the boat.

The boat is named "Blue Grass" and the hull is stamped with the name David Nash on the stern.
