Owner's Remarks - "I have owned and sailed "Mouette" since 2005. The typical sailing areas have been the Solent/Isle of Wight and along the South Coast to the West Country, with occasional trips to the North Coast of France, around the Cherbourg peninsular and the Channel Isles. "Mouette" has been sailed mainly with a crew of two or three which is ideal for this size of boat. She has also been sailed single handed around the Solent and, with the sheets and reefing lines led back to the cockpit, sailing her single handed has been very feasible. For the last two years or so she has been sailed infrequently and therefore it is no longer appropriate for me to keep a boat for my own personal use."
