Pandora 2 – River Cruiser
Built by Ernest Collins in 1934, Pandora II was one of four of the Pandora class in the hire fleet. After years of service she was put out to grass before being found by the grandsons of her builder in the 1990s: she was in a sorry state in a dyke in Stalham.
The two brothers set about restoring her and we have it on good authority that they did a ‘proper job’. No bodges or short cuts. Unfortunately, the brothers fell out: one wanted to restore-to-sail; the other restore-to-sell. She never did get her internal doors or locker fronts cleaned up and re- instated. (We have them in their 1990s condition – ready for restoration).
We bought P2 from the Duke family in June 2006. Her handicap was -19(P). We started racing her, gently, at the Autumn downriver race in 2007. The handicap committee kindly eased her handicap to give us some encouragement. Her home turf was Barton – so the Barton Opens and Regattas were our opportunities to race her. As her results improved, so her handicap was hardened again. And after her win at the 2011 Barton Regatta she was down to -16.
P2 has not raced for a while, due to ill health, and sadly we have decided, after many miles of happy family cruising, as well as her modest racing achievements, she needs new owners to love her.
