An East Coast Yacht
Leila is a rare example of a Victorian racing cutter, built in 1892 in Charlton, London for a businessman who sailed with the Royal Temple Yacht Club at Ramsgate, and is on the National Historic Ships Register. She won the Round Britain race in 1904. Since 1961, she has been owned by the Alison family and moored on Fisher’s Quay, Great Yarmouth. She was found by Rob Bull and David Beavan of Southwold in the summer of 2008, when they set up the trust. She will mainly operate from the historic berth in Lowestoft.
