Re: Roadford Who’s Coming

Yes, thanks to all involved. We had a great time and it was well worth the long trip. Finally got Ho e at 10.30pm!

Hykeham will be a doddle in comparison.

Re: Roadford Who’s Coming

Does anyone know if the burger van will be operating?

Also, I need to get a Pico rudder from Roadford to Plymouth where it is destined for the sailing charity Horizons. Can anyone help?

Re: Calling classic Finns

I have two complete sails, but I also have this Hyde one which I don’t have a full set of battens for. It’s not urgent, I would just like to see how it looks.

In other news I seem to be stuck at 6.80 on the mast rake because the mast foot appears to be at the end of its range of travel.

Re: Calling classic Finns

Alan I will bring your battens. One or two fitted, I will bring the others plus the sail in hope I might find a match somewhere.

Re: Roadford Who’s Coming

I have shared the vent link on Facebook to the Streaker, Miracle, Javelin and Phantom groups, inviting all pre 1985 Boats to join us. It was great to see a classic Streaker at Hunts. Who else should I try to flush out?

Re: Hunts - who is coming?

The galley will be open for lunches, cake, snacks etc. I thought we could make the usual pilgrimage to the Dolphin or similar on Saturday night.

Re: Capsize aid.

I have some new centreboard fittings from Suntouched that have a groove in them for the shockcord. The boat is currently stripped of all fittings and about to be re-rigged. Peter where are your lines fitted?
