Sir Winston Churchill
Famous wooden 3 mast sail boat training vessel has just emerged from a very extensive refit, as a charter vessel in the Greek fleet, fully renovated in 2000. She is designed by Camper & Nicholson and constructed of Steel, and built in between 1964-66 by Richard Dunston (Hessle) Ltd., at the Haven Shipyard, Hessle, Yorks. The beautiful sailing yacht was built in response to the idea of a tall ships race, first set forward by Bernard Morgan in 1954. In 1955, a committee was formed that initially called itself the Sail Training Race Committee. At that time no English vessel existed to enter the race and a number of overseas ships were chartered and raced under the English flag. Under the patronage of the Duke of Edinburgh, public support was rallied and funds were raised for the commissioning of the Sir Winston Churchill. Originally used as a training vessel accommodating up to 46 people. They yacht is now very comfortable with beautifully finished, spacious cabins as well as very attractive lounge and dining areas. The deck space onboard is huge with sunbathing areas as well as a very sheltered area for dining on the foredeck where the intricacies of sailing this amazing vessel can be watched in comfort and safety. Beautifully decorated cabins provide luxury amenities yet will travel you through time in beauty of her history. A truly unique piece of history to experience memorable sailing vacation in Greek isles.
