Fifty years after her first single-handed global circumnavigation, the 36ft cutter Lively Lady is once again back in the water in an as new condition having recently undergone a long and extensive refit at Hayling Yacht Company by volunteers from the charity Around and Around. The refit work included replacing the deck, reassembling the wheelhouse, new electrics, an interior refit and a full repaint using Jotun Yachting paint products.

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Sir Alec Rose’s global circumnavigation aboard Lively Lady. A greengrocer from Portsmouth with a passion for single-handed sailing, Sir Alec set sail on 16th July 1967 returning 12 months later on 4th July 1968 having circumnavigated the globe, stopping off in Australia and New Zealand. A year after that of Sir Francis Chichester aboard Gypsy Moth IV, and a year before that of Sir Robin Knox Johnson’s in Suhali. You can see Lively Lady at this year’s Hamble Classics Regatta in September.

“The hard work carried out by the volunteers at Around and Around has certainly paid off, with Lively Lady looking better than new and in a condition which will see her through the next 50 years, said Jim Brickwood, Business Development Manager, Jotun Yachting UK.

Jotun paints are distributed in Ireland by CH Marine.
