SINBAD Buchanan 37ft Sloop 1961
In 1960 Alan Buchanan was persuaded to design a yacht very similar to his own. SINBAD was the result, and she proved to be even faster than his own. On her maiden voyage she entered the Round the Island Race and won. Subsequently from 1988 to 1992 during the ownership o Kathy Kilbey, SINBAD was actively campaigned in RORC Ocean Racing events, including the 1989 Fastnet Race, winning her class. SINBAD’s recent former owner, an experienced yachtsman, had her interior sympathetically and cleverly reworked. He replaced her sails and focused on all areas to make her a very usable family cruiser as well as a potent classic racer. Under her current ownership, SINBAD has wintered for the last 4 years here at the Elephant Boatyard, and had a new teak deck fitted in 2012.
