WWSC now has 14 Cobles - possibly the largest fleet in the country. They are great cruising boats and also frequent the Club's One-Tide Cruises but also race at the Club occasionally in Class 2. Indeed a Coble helmed by David Melville almost won the 2019 Higgs Handicap.
Their 16 foot long hull is very stable and has a generous width which makes these boats well-suited to taking a family on a picnic cruise. They have a small outboard mounted in a well in the transom which provides welcome insurance should the wind die. Those who are really keen can even break out the oars with which these boats come equipped.
If you fancy having a go in a Coble, contact Michael Grant (see Directory) who has just been appointed WWSC Coble Class Captain.
