Golden Otter

Golden Otter is a Burnham Scow built by Stebbings in the 1950’s – probably around 1954. She is still sailing, and is based at West Wittering, Chichester, having been owned by the Western family for some 55 years.

Golden Otter is understood to have been bought originally by the Chalk family, and then owned by the Ambrose family – both of whom lived in the West Wittering area. Then in 1959, she was purchased by Caption Guy Western RN and has been used ever since to introduce successive generations of Western’s to the joys of sailing.

    Just noted you have introduced an error in uploading the above description. It was my father Captain Guy Western (not Watson) who purchased her in 1959.
