Ruffian, 2900
à jour au: 2015
1970? Plan Billy Brown,

"Ruffian": a 35'-0" sloop designed by Billy Brown and constructed by his brother Dick Brown in their pig shed in Portaferry, Northern Ireland.
She was built upside down using three skins of cold moulded mahogany.
She was designed to rate at 27.5ft. IOR and came out slightly lower, enabling them to make the necessary changes to bring her up to the rating. She was designed for the 1971 Fastnet Race.
Due to the Northern Ireland 'troubles' she does not carry a K or an IR prefix to her sail number.
