Does any of your mebers know the builder of about 30 half tonners built in Norway to a humphrey’s design and the name og the class.
The builder was Nesmar and the model was “Nessy”. There where 38 boats built 1982-85 from which the first 4 (Tina II(proto),Spirit(UK), Odin’s Ravn and Fastina Feste had a racing cockpit. No one of them qualified for the HTC83 in Norway although the UK-based boat Spirit took part in HTC87 finishing 26 from 27.
Raced against Spirit in the 80’s at Cowes and Burnham in my old Hustler SJ30 Hullabaloo (not my current Hustler 32) and later in Harmony after she became Harmony 87 following considerable modification for Peter Dyer her owner, by Marcus Hutchinson. Spirit was very comparable in performance to Harmony, whether that would hold true now Harmony has been fully modernised is a moot point, Harmony has her huge length in her favour wearas Spirit looked noticeably shorter around 29.5 ft I’d guess.
