Kate is a First Rule (1907) International Twelve Metre. She was designed by Alfred Mylne in 1908 and built by Philip Walwyn and his small team of woodworkers in St. Kitts. and launched in December 2006.

This new "12" has been built to celebrate the centenary of the founding of the International Yacht Racing Union's rule for Metre Boats. For the purists here is your chance to sail a fully powered up Edwardian gaff cutter with Metre boat pedigree in the Caribbean, New England and Europe.

Kate is 60 foot on deck, 12 metres on the waterline and almost 24 metres from bowsprit tip to main boom end. She carries 250 square metres of sail to windward in mainsail, three headsails and a jack yard topsail. Spinnakers are set down wind. Accommodation is rudimentary and for regatta charter most of the party will sleep ashore or in "mother ships".
