Bumblebee

Designed for an adult to teach a child to sail. The divided sails give the feel of a jib, without the complication for a learner.

Jack Holt designed the Bumblebee for his grandchildren to be able to play in – sailing it seem fairly low on the list of priorities. Much of them time they just played in it! It was probably Jack’s final design.
