The Cork Harbour One Designs
The Cork Harbour One Designs were designed by the famous Scottish yacht designer William Fife. The boats were 30 feet long and built of yellow pine on oak and Initially 6 boats were built at the “Gridiron” in Carrigaloe Cobh in 1896 (Querida, Elsie, Little Devil (Cygnet), Maureen, Minx and Bunyip (Sibyl). They had great racing in their first year so three more were built for 1897 - two were built in Passage West (Imp and Coleen) and another at Carrigaloe (Jap). The tenth and last boat was built at the Fisheries School in Baltimore in 1924 (Betty). Click link to see full story!
