BOOK: The Water Wags 1887-2012
It describes how a random selection of beach based leisure yachts evolved into the oldest one-design dinghy and how the class expanded into England, Scotland, Wales, India, Sri Lanka and further afield, It describes how the one-design was compromised when boats were modified to meet the needs of local conditions and the skills of local boatbuilders. It shows how the fleet has survived in Dublin Bay, Ireland.
