The Pascoe family has been associated with model yachting for almost 100 years.
In about 1912 Charles “Charlie” Pascoe, my grandfather, meet “Chips” Fordyce” and had a 30” hull shaped. He finished off this hull, rigged it and gave it the name “ Star “. From what I understand this was the beginning of the Pascoe’s association with model yachting.
Shortly before my father Howard Pascoe was born in 1918, Charlie had a larger hull built. He again finished it off and she was given the name “White Heather”. Charlie’s other three sons, my brothers Bruce, Stan and Les all had models built for them. These models are all fine examples of “pure pond yachts” and have been treasured by the Pascoe family ever since. These models initialy inspired all of the Pascoe boys to become champion yachtsmen in whatever class they chose to sail in.
All of these models are unique in their design and construction. They are all tuned to sail and race. This is a very unique feature when comparing these models to other examples which are purely decorative.
The family tradition is now keep alive by Wayne Pascoe, 3 of whose models are featured above – the schooner Yankee, the sloop Archie Logan & a 1/2 model of Lady Eva.
