After spending her early years as a general purpose inshore fishing boat, 'Grace' was purchased by Peter Johnson during the early sixties and rigged with new Terrylene sails.  Almost overnight she became very successful winning races at many regattas, including three dipping lug trophies at the 1963 Inter Club and two in 1965.
