 Achilles 24 Painting

I attach a painting of Ensis done by our Killyleagh artist Duxy.  This was created from many internet photos with my input ,as I don't have any photos of her sailing!  This painting has brought back many happy  memories, . It is real action!

              I owned Ensis for about 10 years but after having both hips replaced I was too stiff for sailing. So sold her about 12 years ago.    The Achillies 24 is a a marvellous sea yacht. Double reefed ,storm jib and the rigging singing she loves it.  She has no tendency to broach and can surf happily down the waves, even sideways!      I raced in Strangford Lough from Killyleagh Yacht Club and down the coast to Carlingford where we won the Oyster Pearl Trophy in 1995.

              I am so pleased with this painting I wondered if other owners might be interested. Duxy says he has been most intrigued by the Achillies and my stories. He says he could accept other commissions.
