Lecture: “Miss Winifred Sutton and the Siren of the Solent: IYRS’s WEE WINN Replica” by Warren Barker


Launched in June of 2019, the IYRS version of Wee Winn touched the water a celebration; a celebration of her pedigree, her intrinsic beauty, and the drive and determination of her builders. Skill, care, and collaboration brought the project to fruition. Though we still hold Miss Winifred Sutton’s boat on a pedestal, these recreations will continue to celebrate the woman who made her famous. Hand on the helm, in full Victorian regalia, she brought home the inspiration and the silver.
