  Broker’s Comments THALASSA is a 48’ yawl designed by Charles Sibbick, built of pitch pine on oak at his Cowes yard in 1903 but completed by Fay of Southampton (which became Camper & Nicholson) in 1906 and her story, some aspects of which are recorded below, is remarkable.Sibbick’s star shone brightly, although not nearly as well known as Fife or Watson. He developed the fin and bulb keel configuration with a separate rudder, some 60 years before it became generally accepted.That this vessel belonged to the same family for over 70 years speaks volumes………both yacht and her owners have benefitted. THALASSA is still wonderfully original, both in terms of layout below  and equipment on deck. For a vintage yacht this design has proved to be safe and easy to sail as well in her racing days as in her more recent summer cruises. Her simplicity is as striking as it is refreshing. Thalassa has been thoroughly maintained with great care to keep her character. She is spacious on deck with teak cockpit, hatches and rail. Her interior is largely original and is very attractively paneled, full of interest and the atmosphere of her age. HistoricalAlthough the identity of her first owner is unknown, there’s a record of owners since 1908. She raced frequently and in the 1927 Fastnet came 3rd. In 1934 and ‘35 she was owned by Guy Napier-Martin, whose sailing master was John Illingworth. He made extensive alterations and refers to her in his classic book ‘Offshore’.In 1936 Alan Baker bought the boat and her participation in the 1939 Fastnet Race is reported in the book ‘To Sea in Carpet Slippers’ by Sandy Sandison, THALASSA’s cook at the time.After the war, which she spent safely in a mud berth on the east coast, she was raced extensively with considerable success. When Alan Baker died in 1966 she was taken over by his daughter and her husband Richard Sewell who sailed her very actively for the next 41 years.
