Commisioned by a group in the UK as a replacement for the INTERNATIONAL SNIPE, it never achieved much popularity. Designed to use the same rig as the SNIPE, it was thought to be greatly under canvassed. Of the few boats built, most were delivered with much larger rigs than the design originally called for.
