At 16'10" overall Tirrik is smaller all round than the Caledonia Yawl but is still a great daysailer for a couple or a single hander.The standard rig is a balanced lug which is very easy to use in a wide variety of conditions. A gunter sloop is another rig configuration available and we have also built a gunter rigged yawl.

There are also a number of interior options available from a completely open boat to one with side bench seating and fore and aft decks.

When we took Lychee out for her launch, the only camera that would work was a small digital still camera so the video clip of her sailing is only a short one and can be seen below.
