It was, I believe, Sir Francis Chichester who said that one should never buy a yacht unless it was a case of love at first sight. And this is exactly what happened to me the fi rst time I set eyes on Samba, moored at Bayona on a grey winter’s morning, after having arranged to take her for a short trial run. I had no doubt that her previous owner must have felt the same way about this marvellous Angus Primrose design, with her low freeboard and raked stem, an ample beam promising firm stability and her fine narrow stern, culminating in a classical triangular transom, long since replaced by today’s designers to allow for more extensive bathing platforms.
I realised what I could do with this boat as soon as I opened the door to her stern locker, containing the canvas, cordage, tools, waterproofs, her outboard… there were even a couple of long oars. This was a boat that had sailed a lot and done it well, and her owner had evidently treated her with the affection that only seafaring people can truly feel for their boats.
Sailing her off Bayona, on a rolling sea, I soon discovered the qualities of that design of which, if my memory serves me well, Samba was only the second to be built in Spain. Later, during a first voyage to Sardinia with an inexperienced crew - and this was over twenty years ago - battered by a ferocious mistral that had forced me to use the storm jib and put a third reef into the mainsail, Samba made it more than clear that I could trust her fully, in any seas. That was the first thing she taught me and something that I never afterwards doubted. Ram?n Massachs, who first showed me how to tack, warned me as he handed her over in Almeria, after bringing her through the straights in the face of a fierce easterly, «This boat will always be more capable than you». And so she was for all the years that I sailed her.
Perhaps that was why, when I eventually sold her, I was filled with an enormous sense of emptiness. It was neither because I was disappointed in her nor to replace her with a more spacious or modern boat. I felt absurdly guilty, as if I had turned my back on an old friend, for no good reason, I could not justify it even to myself. But life is full of surprises and you never know what the future will bring.
