In 1979 a very old friend of mine, Jeff Bennett, bought Crack On as a bare hull and deck from Sadlers (keel to be fitted when complete). He took three years to fit her out – a completely different layout to all other 25s, and a ¼ tonne lighter. David Sadler told him that his layout couldn’t be done, but backed down when he saw the final product when she had her keel fitted and was finally launched in 1983.
Jeff, at the time a serving RN officer, built her to sail singlehanded round the World. Unfortunately he became seriously ill and this never happened. I bought her from him in 1985 and have owned her ever since.
She has been raced several times in the Round The Island Race, highest position 200th overall (2009), lowest 299th overall (2008).
When mast is re-stepped there is new pair of spreader brackets (supplied) to be riveted to mast.
