One of my all time favourites from the Drascombe range, I first encountered the Drascombe Drifter whilst serving in the Falkland Islands following the unhappy events of 1982. In 1987 I arrived down South , a type of normality had been established (Normal for Falklands) ; Mare Harbour had been constructed for the use of the Royal Navy (although it was run by the Army) so naturally, as an RAF Officer, I was put in charge of the two recreational sailing boats based therein! As I said, normal for BFFI! The boats, though sadly weather beaten and neglected afforded me and my crew, plus others on the Squadron, a type of sanity through the four windy months of a Southern summer detachment. Windy to the extent that it never blew less than Force 5-6 and we rarely hoisted the sun bleached and patched mains'ls but scooted around in the way of frigates and RFA tankers under mizzen and jib only!
Needless to say when the time came I found one for myself in the UK and can honestly say that I had more fun with her than any other boat that I've owned. I kept her longer than any other too. I don't have time for another boat right now so I've asked Mike to keep telling me NO, you can't have her! .....I'm tempted though.
