Borer Bee

It is always good to get news of the whereabouts of well known Eventides so it was with mixed feelings that we recently heard that E24 “Borer Bee” has come up for sale. She was one of the first Eventide’s built (in 1959, sail No. E8) and was owned by Lt. Comdr. Atkinson, RN, who sailed her home to England from Singapore (see History of the EOA). We last heard of her when two of our members reported seeing her and meeting her present owner in Coleraine during their “Cruise to the Causeway Coast”, published in The Bulletin, Autumn 2009.  Here’s hoping she finds a good home and we continue to hear more about her in future.
