Bowman 57 - Helen Mary R
Helen Mary R is the only sail training variant of the Bowman 57 (she is actually a Class D Tall Ship). A real classic designed by famous yacht designers Holman & Pye & built in 1986 by Southern Boatbuilding Company and Rona Sailing Project, with whom she spent the first 26 years of her life on the river Hamble, near Southampton.
In 32 years of operations she's inspired 5,000 young people and sailed over 100,000 nautical miles! She has a fabulous sailing pedigree - John Ridgeway completed the Whitbread Round the World race in another Bowman 57, English Rose VI in 1976/7 and there are 13 other sister ships spread across the globe.
Her owners are extremely proud of Helen Mary R and operate her principally as a Sail Training Vessel, providing exciting adventures for young people, helping them develop their communication, team-building and physical skills sailing her all around the UK.
We are delighted to offer her for Sailing Adventure Days and Corporate Team Building Days, where she is ideal for developing team-building, communication and relationship skills.
