The Sir Winston Churchill is a 3-masted topsail schooner. Designed by Camper & Nicholson and constructed of Steel, and Built between 1964-66 by Richard Dunston (Hessle) Ltd., at the Haven Shipyard, Hessle, Yorks. The Ship was built in response to the idea of a tall ships race, first set forward by Bernard Morgan in 1954. In 1955, a committee was formed that initially called itself the Sail Training Race Committee. At that time no English vessel existed to enter the race and a number of overseas ships were chartered and raced under the English flag. Under the patronage of the Duke of Edinburgh, public support was rallied and funds were raised for the commissioning of the Sir Winston Churchill. Originally used as a training vessel accommodating up to 46 people, The Sir Winston Churchill has now completed its extensive refurbishment and conversion into a luxury cruise vessel.
