Administrative / Biographical History

The Fife One Design was commissioned by the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club from Wm Fife III in 1926. The class is unique to the RAYC and races in the Menai Straight and Conwy. These boats are sometimes known as the Conwy Fife One design. 15 boats of the class were built by A. M. Dickie & Sons at their Bangor yard, North Wales and there is still a very active racing fleet. In recent years 22 boats were built.
