Shogun (Hull 51)

This is a picture of Shogun in a sailpast at the Oakville Yachtclub.

Shogun has been owned now for nearly thirty years by Tony and Elizabeth Waldegrave of Oakville, who also ran the Owners Association for virtually all those years. Needless to say they are a wealth of information about the owners of the original fleet of 49 Cabots.

As Tony tells the story, he'd been looking for the right boat for a while when he phoned Cabotcraft Industries in the sailing season of 1978 to ask if he might view a Cabot under construction in a planned family trip to Nova Scotia. The bad news was that he discovered the company had just gone under. The good news is that Shogun, bought a very short time earlier by a Dr. Dobson, was apparently up for sale.

Tony and Elizabeth made the purchase.
