6-Metre Scallywag on her way to San Francisco via Fox’s

posted on 6th February 2017 within

The Modern 6-Metre yacht, USA 114 Perspicacious, now called Scallywag, was refurbished by Demon Yachts Ltd of Aldeburgh. She was brought to Fox’s Marina & Boatyard to be rigged and put into final 6-Metre trim prior to being weighed and measured.

With support from Fox’s Rigging and our Marina team, weighing, launching, commissioning and initial sailing trials were completed during a chilly January, before she was carefully loaded into her custom transport container and shipped to San Francisco where she will join the San Francisco 6-Metre fleet for the 2017 season.

Scallyway is expected to take part in the 2017 Worldwide MetreFest in Newport, Rhode Island, an exciting, new regatta for International Rule sailing yachts, and the 2017 World Championships in Vancouver, BC.

Matthew Lingley from Demon yachts commented,: “The Fox’s team has been a great help with this project.”
