The recent announcement that Nordic Clinker or Clench Timber Construction - as practised by several classic boat-builders in Ireland - is now receiving UNESCO Heritage Recognition has caused understandable pride among those who own one of those beauties, craft such as the Mermaids, Shannon One Designs, Castlehaven Ettes, and Dublin Bay Water Wags, to name only four.

But the new recognition has also led to added interest in other boats such as the Rankins which are undergoing a steady revival in Cork Harbour, and were built by the Rankin brothers in Cobh using the edge-glued plywood plank lapstrake technique. To a casual observer, they may look to be clinker built. But they’re not, as the essence of clinker is the clenching or clinking of the athwartships steam-bent timbers, tensioned home using copper rivets.

Yet the Rankins are handsome and very effective boats, so in fairness to them it would surely be more appropriate to use the American term “lapstrake” to describe their build method. Apart from anything else, it’s a much more attractive word in itself than clinker, as clinker suggests the ash-pan under an old and smokey stove, whereas lapstrake immediately suggests the lapwing, an extremely elegant wader patrolling the shore of many a charming estuary.

One of the advantages of the Rankin is that it has a clean interior, uncluttered by those cross-ship timbers which define true clinker construction. Yet the Rankins obtain more than adequate hull strength through the fore-and-aft strakes created by the overlaps, and this s something which is repeated when a standard clinker-built hull is used as the mould to build a fibre-glass dinghy which is arguably clinker, yet isn’t plagued by those endless little corners with which any re-fitter of a classic wooden clinker dinghy will know only too well.

Such people, having spent hours cleaning and sanding and then cleaning again before painting or varnishing the multiple separate sections in their pride-and-joy’s bilges will tend to regard glass fibre creations of clinker-built boats as phoney, which incidentally is a word that ancient Irish has contributed to global English. Yet at this time of year, when long and painful hours labouring in the bilges of wooden clinker-built boats is the prospect face by many classics owners, a “phoney” glass-fibre lapstrake boat suddenly becomes a very attractive proposition indeed.

Thus it’s no surprise that this characterful 2006-built 12ft glass fibre lapstrake sailing dinghy of the Wagtail class has come to the market with Leinster Boats at the rather ripe price of €4, 750. That’s almost €400 per foot, but a quick look at the price of new boats, and a thought or two about the fact that the only woodwork in the Wagtail - some very attractive trim - is extremely accessible for ease of varnishing, and you begin to see things in a more realistic way. In fact, the boat sells herself - all you need is a private harbour or slipway beside some appropriately attractive and un-crowded sailing water. Details from www.LeinsterBoats.ie

Bangor Town Regatta 2021

It’s expected that the fleet will number upwards of 60 with several hundred crew and supporting visitors for the 2021 Regatta.

Among the classes expected are IRC, Sigma 33, RS Elite, and day boats such as Waverleys and Fairies.

The Regatta Chairman is Gavin Watson and Royal Ulster Yacht Club is the organising club for what is Northern Ireland's biggest inshore yacht racing event.

Feeder races from Dun Laoghaire and Scotland are planned.

The Bangor Town Regatta fleet will race out of the Bangor Marina, on what is Belfast Lough’s enviable area of virtually tide and hazard free waters.

Two round-the-buoys courses within a manageable distance from the marina will provide testing but enjoyable racing and in addition, coastal races every day will give those who prefer
somewhat more leisurely competition, the opportunity to use the whole of the Lough.

Racing will be in the capable hands of International Race Officer and National Judge, local man Robin Gray.

The Race Office will be located at the Marina close to where the après sailing will be well catered for.

At A Glance - Bangor Town Regatta 2024

Belfast Lough's Bangor Town Regatta runs from 27th to 30th June and is hosted by the Royal Ulster Yacht Club.
