In extolling the virtues of this class generally it’s hard to improve on the opinion of Uffa Fox, who some 10 years after EMILY’s launch was to declare:

“The owner can sail his Eight Metre round the coast from regatta to regatta, for coastal cruising would give owners the two most sought things in life; health and happiness, for without doubt sailing at sea brings peace to the mind, and the clean salt-laden air health to the body; which are both needed by all in this mechanical age of irritating noise and poisonous fumes. The Eight Metres are very popular, for in the cabin and owner can live, or simply change his wet clothes after a hard race and eat his lunch in comfort according to his ideas of pleasure. Added to this there is the protection the cabin gives in bad weather, for then it seems to make what otherwise be a boat, a ship.”

Such virtues are - most of them - equally applicable to her lakeside domicile in continental Europe. Added her classic provenance and the continuing popularity of racing in this class to the present day  is what doubtless inspired the comprehensive restoration of EMILY to this fine example of the genre.
