Clyde was built in 1955 for a Mr McMillan, foreman and last person in charge at Fife boatyard, Fairlie, Scotland. She is actually a Fife design too from a pre -World War Fife design.
Clyde is a sizeable 6 built for Scottish waters and conditions:
She always proved to be faster above10/12 knots of wind.
Her current owner has had her in Brittany since 1984. Then a cruising 6, she went through a complete hull revision and reconditioning to racing conditions; this encompassed a new deck lay-out, hull reinforcement at shrouds liaison, wooden mast and boom were replaced by aluminium spars, new winches and sails etc. This restoration was conducted by Chantier Pichavant in Brittany.
In 1995 she had her mahogany keel replaced, this operation was conducted by the same boatyard.
Since 2008, she has been used as a day boat.
During her racing years, Clyde won the classic regatta belle Plaisance and came second in Coupe de l’Entente Cordiale, a 6 metre French-British reunion in Benodet, Brittany.
