Nimbus was sent to us to be fully restored by Gillian Westell. The boat had huge sentimental value for her having been previously owned by her father John Westell, the designer of the 5o5 dinghy, in the 1940s. Yachts and Yachting has covered the incredible story of Nimbus’ restoration.

New suit of sails were made by Mike MacNamara.
