Looe Lugger Regatta 2009

Some of these traditional luggers attending the Looe Lugger Regatta 2009 are over 100 years old. They are a real spectacle to watch while under sail. The lugger was at one time the main type of fishing boat used by local fisherman off the south Cornish coast. Mostly built by local shipyards and boat yards along the coast and designed to suit the local conditions and the local customer. Originally built as sailing vessels although some were refitted with engines.Some of these traditional luggers are over 100 years old. They are a spectacle spectacle to watch while under sail.
