Pertlelote

Does anyone remember the Pertelote?
She was a regular visitor to the basin at Kirkwall in the late 1960s being owned by a farmer on Stronsay.
She had a black hull back then.
Am trying to put together a web site about her and would appreciate any information.

I was at Kirkwall Grammar in 68-69 and a member of the Sea Cadets

Comments:
Think that the owner was Mr Hugh Birley of Huip Farm Stronsay. He and his family sailed the Pertelote all around Orkney each summer, think that she was overwintered somewhere south.

Hugh Birley (hope my spelling is correct) who had Huip Farm in Stronsay was the owner.

Had a trip on her from Stronsay to Kirkwall with Mr. Birley and family on a beautiful summer's day around 1969-70. Great people - lovely boat.Black hull is correct.

I worked as a nanny for Hugh and Jill Birley in Sparsholt, Hants. Summer of 1967. We sailed on their boat Pertelote that summer. She was moored at Newton Ferrers. I have a good photograph.

I remember the boat in Kirkwall basin but wouldn't have been able to recall the name of it. Was also in Sea Cadets for a while and can clearly remember Brian at School!
Seem to recall him having a mishap on his bike at bottom of East Road!
