Louise was our dream boat. As a result of bereavement I do not use her enough to justify keeping her and want to pass her on to someone who will enjoy her and benefit from the many thousands we spent. She is in sail-away condition and will be sold with all equipment. We were very pleased with the way she sailed. We used our new Kemp sails in the 2016 Cowes Classics. With a scratch crew we came 7th overall and were the 3rd Twister out of 5. Considering that bad weather delayed our arrival so we missed one of the 4 races - we were pleased.
