GBR 22 Titia

Designed by David Boyd and in 1952 built to the same plans as Marletta, by Woodnutts at Bembridge for Sir Kenneth Preston and Robert Steele, to represent Britain in the 1952 Olympics where, suffering from the usual lateness in working up she finished 8th..  Subsequently sold to the Canada where she was numbered KC 22, she raced out of Toronto and on the Great Lakes until Sixes nearly died and was subsequently taken to Rhode Island, where considerable restoration work was done.  Located originally by Matt Cockburn, she was rescued and brought to Penpol on the Fal Estuary, where she was beautifully restored by Brian Pope and Andy Postle. In their first outing in 2006 they won the French Classic Championships at La Trinite; winning six of the nine races.  They subsequently finished 4th in the 2007 Cl;assic Worlds; 3rd in the 2008 European Classic Championships at La Trinite; 4th in the 2009 Worlds at Newport, RI; 2nd in the 2010 Europeans at Brunnen and 9th in the 2012 Europeans at Nynashamn.
