    I've seen a couple of Yeoman sink on Rutland Water before now, and that's an inland water.....still it was shallow enough to get them up later!.

    Naturally we should not forget the Folkboats too, which quite often seem to win the Round the Island race on handicap rating.

    The very early Yeoman were built with no Buoyancy built in ( some put buoyancy bags in under the seats).. Later they had a sealed bow chamber and semi sealed, aft compartment , Later still the side seats became buoyancy chambers and now they have EEC approved anti swap side seats / chambers and mouldings and can take a 90 degree knock down and hardly take on any water. Oh and there was a self draining version which would be my choice, it saves bailing when racing in 40 knots of wind!!
