Winklebrig - Wheezy Anna CK88


Wheezy Anna is one of the few Mersea winklebrig's which was worked and later restored for racing with MFOB's.
Built in 1925 by Kidby's of Brightlingsea for Jack Mole, she featured in John Leather's book "The Salty Shore" which explains how she got her name.
She was passed onto the Clarke family, and was worked up until the 1960's. She was first restored by Peter Clarke and then again in 2004 by Gerard Swift.
A lovely brig to sail and race approximately LOA 15'.
