KRKA is a junk rigged Newbridge Pioneer, designed by Bill Dixon and built in 1986 by Newbridge Boats in Bridport, Dorset.
She is twin keeled and steered by tiller in the cockpit and is named after a beautiful national park in Croatia. For simplicity we pronounce the name "Cracker". 
What makes KRKA special is that for many years she was owned by the JRA and used as a charter boat in the Solent area. Aspiring junk-rig sailors (and others) could learn what it was like to sail a junk-rigged boat, as well as having a good holiday. 
The original owners sailed her across the Channel, crossed France via the canals, and based her in the Mediterranean for a number of years.
