Dr Radcliffe commissioned F. W. Mitchell to build a modified boat, based on the One Design for his son Anthony to sail on Oulton Broad. The overall length of 15ft was retained but with modifications in hull shape and deck layout and with a taller rig and lighter construction. This boat, “Windrush”, although not a true Wivenhoe One Design has raced along with the Wivenhoe fleet at various times and was given the sail number 14 on the incorrect assumption that no boat had originally been built of that number.
