Rustler 33: boat testClassicboat, 07. September 10:05 PM
Cornwall is desperately vulnerable to the mood swings of the Atlantic, and the day we chose to test sail the Rustler 33 was a classic - not a zephyr of wind and a low sky pressing its greyness into everything.
With water coursing down the windows of the office occupied by Adrian Jones, one half of Rustler Yachts, photographer Mervyn Maggs and I had suddenly become very enthusiastic about instant coffee and talking shop, as we waited for the promised window of sun and wind to appear. Rustler, founded in the mid-80s here in Falmouth, is known for its blue water cruising yachts.
