BELLE’s owner took her to the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival in Maryland. In addition to an award, BELLE was also written up, with a few nice photos, by Anne Bryant of Small Boats Monthly:
“I also happened by the relaunching and re-christening of BELLE, a Herreshoff 12 1/2-inspired small sailing boat designed and built by Daniel Gonneau. With her more open layout inboard and with no internal ballast, she’s quite different from the design of her keelboat cousin, but no less gorgeous.” — Anne Bryant, Small Boats Monthly
Many thanks for the comments and photos!
