18 Foot Restricted

The Falmouth 18 Foot Restricted Class was born more than 100 years ago. The only restriction was the hull length from stem to stern. The beam, draft, mast and sail plans could be varied to suit the owner's wishes. 

Two wooden boats were built in St Mawes by Fred Pasco in 1898. Chow Chow (renamed Magpie in 1904) to an E Payne design for a Mr R Paul and Chin Chin for a Dr Harden, a founder member of Falmouth Sailing Club to his own design. These were soon followed by two boats built in Falmouth. Marion, built by the Jackett family for themselves in 1900, and the Alfred Mylne designed Myrtle in1902. Then Wahine, another Pasco/Harden collaboration, was built in1903 above what was then a coal strore and now the Co-op in the centre of St Mawes. Marie, built by Frankie Peters, was completed in St Mawes in 1931.

All six boats, including the three surviving wooden boats Magpie, Marie and Myrtle, sail under the St Mawes Sailing Club burgee. Whisper, the first fibreglass boat, was built from a mould taken from Myrtle. Francis and Moey, the other two fibreglass boats, were built on a mould taken from Marie.
