V123 Jan Gilda was built by the Cheoy Lee shipyard in Hong Kong, in 1963, so is another of Drumler’s twins. She is based in Italy, where her owner is friends with the owners of V58 Bettina, V100 Return, V126 Fab and V146 Tanera. Apparently they will all be sailing together in Trieste, Italy in October 2014.
She was once owned by Tom Masterman and, before that, by E H Masters who kept her at Chichester. In 2004, Jan Gilda sailed from Scotland, via Gibralter, to Jezera on the Croatian island of Murter and has apparently remained in the Adriatic ever since.
