Various Details from the owner;

Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and the Western Mediterranean. Whistler has
behaved impeccably throughout. She has also taken part in occasional
races to France and Spain and round the cans in Plymouth Sound. She has

round to Gibralter and the Mediterranean, she returned to UK north
through France, up the Rhone and then via the Canal Lateral de la Loire
to the Seine and through Paris.
current ownership she has sailed to the West Country and the Channel
Islands in the Summer. A memorable Channel crossing with a F4 gave us a
10 hour crossing and an average speed of 7 knots. The new engine and
Autoprop have made a significant difference to her performance and
economy and handling in reverse is much easier. "
