The BCC 28 was made famous by the voyaging couple Lin and Larry Pardey who owned and sailed two channel cutters designed for them by Lyle Hess. They sailed under all five of the great southern capes and crossed the oceans many times. The Bristol Channel Cutter was designed and built for safe passage making and to be easy to handle for a solo sailor or a couple. If you are reading this you undoubtedly are a follower of the BCC 28 and you might still yearn for one of these salty sailing vessels. You likely know that the Sam L. Morse Company built 126 of these over 35 years in Costa Mesa California.
