This project was especially demanding because we were trying to bring a 100ft, 1930s classic into class. Nobody had managed this before. Certainly not on this size of boat. Although Blue Bird may have the presence of a substantial yacht, she is in fact quite small for Lloyds and MCA class registration. The goal seemed constantly impossible to achieve until finally, after huge endeavour and much perseverance, she attained full classification in 2009; an achievement that reflects the efforts of the whole team.
