Classic Gaff Cutter Yacht

Aeolus is a 41ft / 12 m gaff cutter restored to original state - it gives the experience of sailing back in the 1900s.

It has five sails, and two extra in light winds, which need a full crew of eight to race to handle the 100+ ropes. One crew has the excitement of going out to the end of bowsprit (the spar protruding forwards, see photo) to hoist the flying jib!

Sailing as a team of eight is great fun. Working together to handle the boat, bunking and eating in the open cabin below deck, brings everyone together - you know who your friends are fast.
