I built her mostly in my spare time, which explains, why it took me next to 5 years. Three times I had to move her to a new building site. One place had no opening big enough for to let her out. We had to pull down a wall. She is a modification on L.F. Herreshoffs "Nereia". In the end, we swapped her for an old cottage. I still don?t know, if this was a good deal.

Celeste crossed the Atlantic twice. In Antigua she made the second place in the annual race week.
