The Syndicate  


"in 1993 the Roseland Working Boat Syndicate was formed – not actually named after the pub in which the idea was first discussed, but because it was to be based on the Roseland Peninsula."

The Roseland Working Boat Syndicate which owns Evelyn, came about in 1994.  It was formed as a result of a discussion between three good friends, Andy Tyler, David Mathewson and Glenn Litherland, who sailed their own boats from St Mawes Sailing Club. Their passion for both sailing and wooden boats resulted in the formation of the Syndicate and the preservation of Evelyn.

In the long standing tradition of shared boat ownership, there are thirty two Syndicate shares, but with some shares having been divided into half shares, there are 40 Syndicate members today.


Each member pays an annual subscription which generates sufficient funds to pay for the annual winter maintenance and any other expenses necessary to keep Evelyn is good racing condition throughout the season.


The Syndicate is managed by an elected committee of members who take responsibility for appointing skippers and ensuring that there are sufficient funds to provide for Evelyn's up keep and her future sustainability.


Opportunities to join the Syndicate and take part in its racing and social activities come about fairly frequently and anyone interested in joining and becoming a part owner in Evelyn should go to the Contact page and complete the form.
