Fulmar

Introduction

The Fulmars were introduced to replace the Westerly 31s - Berwick Longbow Pentland and Renown - and in performance terms were unequalled at the time (The Fulmars that is, not the W 31s!).


In The Westerly Owners Association Definitive Guides[1] it says " Marry a Fulmar by all means but get a Typhoon as your mistress!"


Once more to quote the Definative Guide, "One does not really have to sail a Fulmar, one just lays a hand on the tiller and lets the boat take care of everything else..."

There's nothing more to be said really!
