Re: And now a Shearwater in France.

A very nice looking early Shearwater. By the time i started racing them in around 1973 there were very few bridge deck boats still being sailed.

Classic 14s at Rickmansworth

Rickmansworth Sailing Club are holding an open for Classic International 14s over the weekend of 12th and 13th June.
They are also holding a Firefly open on the Saturday.

We should be back out sailing then so if you have a 24 or a Firefly this should be a good event.

Re: Classic Finn rigging

John,
I’ve got a copy of Finnatics but it’s rather a lot to put on the site. We need to,find a way to host more stuff before new add a lot more. I’ve got the Finn lines and building plans to go on the site and we’re trying to find the best way to do that next.

Classic Finn rigging

I’ve added the Classic Finn rigging guides to the Classic Finn section on the British Finn site. It’s aimed at Needlespar rigs but I use very similar set up for my wooden mast.

Re: Does the FB Group support the CVRDA Mission?

How practical would it be to post just links on fb to content on the website?

Re: Does the FB Group support the CVRDA Mission?

I have no answers, but I agree that the FB page has sucked the forum dry. Just looking at the sparceness of the forum posts shows that, and this means there's no search option for interesting topics. I also note the fb pages get lots of irrelevant content on from around the world. Fb seems to be tak...

Re: AGM - 5. Fixtures

As Pat said, no fixtures for this year. I've been fortunate that I've been able to sail from Warsash both informally since May and club racing since July and I took Django out for her only outing this year at a Finn open at Christchurch in September. We've had few offers for open events for 2021 so ...
