Introduction

The first of the designs created by someone other than Denys Rayner the founder of Westerly. The W28 is faster than her predecessors being more roomy and easier to handle. She did not get the recognition she deserved as she was bigger than the Westerly customers wanted at that time. The Cirrus, Tiger and the Nimrod were all designs by John Butler in 1967 to 1969.
