Nimble, designed by Des Townson, built by Robert Brooke © Richard Gladwell www.photosport.co.nz
Over the past week she has been on display at the 50th Anniversary Dinner for the 12ft class, and today was at Auckland Sailing Club.
We are pleased to present this gallery of images, both as a tribute to the beautiful Townson line and also in recognition of the outstanding skills, craftsmanship and perseverance of Robert Brooke who has built a beautiful yacht, accurate to the available gear and fittings of her time.
Nimble's wooden foils were built by Brian Peet, with a very clever kick up control on the rudder.
