Cockleshell is a unique wooden dayboat built in Guernsey in 1926.
Sailed across the English Channel to the east coast of England in 1959, since 1989 Cockleshell has been a regular competitor in the Hamble River racing fleet. Owned and maintained by Jonty Sherwill and partner Vicki Weston, in 2013 & 2014 she won her class at Cowes Classics Week, then Cockleshell inspired the creation of the Hamble Classics Regatta in 2016 in which she has competed each year since.
