Group Description

This is an owners group for people who sail Privateer 20s. The Privateer 20 is a 20ft cutter, available in both Gaff and Bermudian rig versions, designed by Norman Howard and built in the 70s by Small Craft (Blockley).

Home page photo: German Member Carola's boat Mary Ann II. Cover photo shows sunrise over the Gower, from the Senior Moderator's boat anchored in Priory Bay, Caldy Island, August 2017.

We plan to change both photographs from time to time, and we hope eventually to do so on a moderately regular basis, including using good members' photos from the relevant sections of our site plus any sent direct to the Moderators.

To borrow a guideline from another site that some of us also inhabit, drifting off topic is tolerated within reason. Consider it the equivalent of the sailing club bar!

New members are very welcome, but for a short period their posts will be moderated while they test the waters.

As well as the Message Boards, do browse the Photos and the Files sections (and return to them from time to time, as there is a wealth of material there. And you may also find the Links section useful.

There is no Privateer Class Association in existence, but the Shipmate is a slightly smaller sister ship from the same designer and builder, and we are developing links with the Shipmate Owners' Association. Privateer owners are very warmly encouraged to join that Association; http://www.shipmate.org.uk
