    Dan, can you clarify whether you are talking about a yacht or a dinghy?

    It had a cabin, so I suppose, technically a yacht, but about the size of a dinghy, about 14ft I guess. White tupperware, I would guess mid 70s vintage. There were loads of this type of boat built but this one caught my attention because it seemed to be sailing so well. I don't think it was a Micro-cupper, Gem type of thing though.

    If it had a cabin and tupperware, it is not an Oxey Bird. 14 feet and a cabin ??? it must have been a little cabin
    I respect my elders, but I can't find many now

    I was guessing at 14ft, didn't have time to measure, but it was small, which prompted my interest in such a little boat going so well upwind. I was doing 7 knots downriver, she was doing [say] 3 knots up river, had little time to take notes.
    Not an Oxy Bird, I've never come across one of those. Time was when almost all saing clubs had their own one design, often built by local craftsmen. How different nowadays.
