Proteus

“Proteus” is one of the few Morbic-12s with the option to configure as either Lug rig or Sloop-lug. The name “Proteus” was inspired by the shape-changing nature of our craft – Lug to Sloop-Lug rig – a characteristic attributed to Proteus the Greek god of rivers and oceanic bodies of water.

Built in South Oxfordshire, UK – March to September 2020 – Mainly during lockdown.Constructed from kit by the two owners. One worked on the hull in his garage, the other on mast, spars, foils and a multitude of minor details in his garden.

Proteus has sailed in Pembrokeshire, Powys, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Sussex and Oxfordshire.More distant waters have included The Dorestad Raid (Netherlands), and she is registered for Semaine du Golfe Du Morbihan 2023.
