Victoria 800 JOYSPRING

JOYSPRING is a cutter-rigged Victoria 800 that is owned and sailed, usually single-handed, by Michael Taylor who lives in Lichfield and has been a member of our association since 1999.

She is normally to be found moored at the Neyland Marina, inside Milford Haven.


She was photographed by Peter Cosker on the 18th June 2010 in the L'Aber Wrac'h marina on the north-west coast of France.

On talking with Michael, we discovered that he had sailed single-handed from Milford Haven to the Cove on St. Agnes in the Scilly Islands, then to L'Aber Wrac'h the following day, before departing to sail through the Chenal du Four to Brest and L'Aulne river, a trip he does frequently!

An attempt to take a photograph of Michael departing failed. We had seen the boat moored, with no sign of activity just before his announced sailing time, and the next time we looked, he was gone and nowhere to be seen. We trust he had an enjoyable holiday and a safe return passage.
