OWN A PART OF CANADIAN MARITIME HISTORY!!
After the resounding success of RED JACKET in 1966 and 1967, Cuthbertson and Cassian again teamed up with Erich Bruckmann to produce the Redline 41 in series production, that is, built out of a mould. BAGATELLE, built in 1969 for Mr. Allan Taylor, was the first of the MkII configurations featuring a filled out back end that was often referred to as a bustle.
In 1969 the Royal Canadian Yacht Club accepted a challenge from the Cleveland Yachting Club for the Canada’s Cup. The RCYC produced three potential defenders all designed by Cuthbertson and Cassian and built by Erich Bruckmann. – BAGATELLE, TRUE NORTH and MANITOU. MANITOU won the defender trials and went on to decisively defeat the US challenger NIAGARA by a margin of 4-0.
BAGATELLE has had a long and distinguished racing and cruising career sailing out of the RCYC and the Kingston Yacht Club under the ownership of Mr. Don Currie who has cared for her since 1971. Over 20 Redline 41’s were built with the Redline 41 CONDOR repeating RED JACKET’s overall victory at SORC in 1972.
