"Raggerty" is a fine example of the Groupe Finot designed First 29. She had a new P bracket fitted and new folding propeller in 2019, her hull had a full osmosis epoxy treatment in 2000 and her windows were renewed in 2019. She has been mainly family cruised but has also been club raced and won the local 2019 series. Her owners have now purchased a motor cruiser to cater for their growing crew of grand children!
