  1. The success of Cheers convinced me of the benefits a well designed multihull offered and when Tom Follett demonstrated Three Cheers prior to the ’76 OSTAR, I was inspired to build one for myself. With much advice and support from Dick she was launched in 1990 and I am still sailing her today. I could not have built a more suitable boat for my purpose. She is called ‘Slainte’ which is Gaelic for ‘Cheers’
