Impressive in her first season, gaining five firsts and only being out of the prize list once.

From Sir Henry Spurrier, ownership then passed to Brian Stuart who, as a member of Lloyds, had sailed extensively in the Laurent Giles ketch Lutine (0163), which had been named after the famous Lutine bell that sat in Lloyds of London. Rumor has it that that, having monopolized Lutine, it was suggested that Brian might wish to own his own yacht. So it was that he soon found and purchased Zulu, which now renamed Cataweyo has survived the years, and is now a member of the British Classic Yacht Club.

The racing achievements of Zulu, are as glorious and honorable today as in her debut year, much to the hard work and restoration of her present owner David Murrin. who found her, in 1989 in an abandoned condition. She still sails under the name Catewayo
