There has recently been a real blossoming of interest in the One Ton Cup class of boats – CLARIONET and SUNMAID V coming immediately to mind. This fine example to a well established British design for her first aficionado owner has not rested on her laurels but continued racing with some notable success and moreover providing enormous fun for her owner and crews. Notwithstanding her racing capabilities she is also well turned out for cruising so while fast and responsive she has a larger cockpit than most with some good volume below.



Designed by Peter Nicholson for Owen Aisher to compete under the old One Ton Cup Rule, the boat’s original name was Yeoman XIV. In 1967 Peter Nicholson helmed her in the Copenhagen One Ton Cup as one of three British boats.

The original Yeoman name was taken by Owen Aisher for his next boat. After that she was named QUAILO for three years, then DALCASSION. Barrie Martin bought her in 2001, attracted by the pedigree, but particularly by her materials and decided to call her A DAY AT THE RACES to reflect her competitive history.

Since her re launch in March 2003 A DAY AT THE RACES has been moored in Beaulieu. As well as the Round the Island Race she’s taken part with respectable results in the RSYC double handed series and won a race in Cowes Week 2004. In 2005 she was fifth overall in the Cowes Week handicap class and third in class in the British Classic Yacht Club Regatta. In 2006 she was again third in class in the BCYC.

Refits 2002-2017

After 35 years at sea a major refit was called for. The work was carried out at the Agamemnon Boatyard at Bucklers Hard. Key structural and mechanical elements were replaced, including keels bolts, floors and the 13 foot long mast step.

Mast and all standing rigging replaced along with an upgrade of all electronic and navigation systems. Most of the electrical components were replaced, along with the drive shaft. The Yanmar GM20 was fitted new. Below decks the cooker and sanitary ware were renewed but the original mahogany joinery was retained as far as possible.

Engine mounts and universal joints replaced.
