National 12 2066

This afternoon I am going on a mission of mercy to collect a National 12 which has been donated to my sailing club, which, very ungratefully, they do not want. The boat is a Sparklet design built in 1962, called Sundowner, and according to its current owners in good condition with all its parts. Doe...

Re: National Rally 2016 - Hunts SC

Saturday evening, we could finish racing at a reasonable time, maybe have a meal at the club rather than go out, plenty of sailing time. Sunday racing won't start until 11.30, so time then too.

Re: National Rally 2016 - Hunts SC

Most non sailors usually choose to go either into Cambridge - the guided busway is right on our doorstep - or into S Ives, which is ten minutes walk from the club.

Re: Looking for a trailer that would fit a TOY

Phil have you managed to sort some thing out? If not i could potentially sell you a trailer and bring the ToY on it, then meet you part way. I have a spare road base which suits my contender, or the club might sell the trailer which comes with the 2000 we are buying.

Re: Looking for a trailer that would fit a TOY

Your ToY is just down the road from me, I think, and I have a 2000 to collect from Plymouth. I have been trying to think of a way we could split the journey, if that interested you. The 2000 has a road trailer.

Re: East Coast Event 2016

I wonder if there might be scope here, between the two events, for us to do the distance cruise some of us have been thinking about? If we're taking holiday anyway?

This reminds me of the poor chap who won the Wingnut at Hunts in 2013.
