Built in 1974, China Girl was first owned by Mr. W.A. King-Webster, a founding member of the JRA, and kept in Galloway, Scotland. He rigged her as a junk yawl and named her Three Sisters. She was sold in 1987 to her previous owners, who refitted her for short-handed cruising, rigged her as a junk sloop using a Sunbird rig with hinged battens, and renamed her China Girl. In 2013 she was lying at Agde, on the French Mediterranean coast. I bought her, and with my son sailed her back to Plymouth via the Canal du Midi and Brittany.
