Eagle eyed members may have spotted ‘Jap’ on the marina in the Royal Cork in recent weeks.
Having been rediscovered on the South Coast of England in 1999 and subsequently undergoing a full restoration, ‘Jap’ has been a regular on the European Classic Boat Circuit for the last twenty years and thankfully, has now returned home to Cork in all her splendor to celebrate Cork300.
WX Nixon recently gave a nice account of the Class, ‘Jap’ and how she made it back to Cork.

Current owner of ‘Elsie’, Pat Dorgan, also gave a great account of the class in one of our earlier Way Back When articles here.
