Re: New sails...recommend a sailmaker?

Morgan Sails made the full size sail for Aggie. Fantastic quality. I will get the Genoa from them too.

Re: 2018 events

I'm afraid we need to move Hunts back a week to the 9th and 10th June. The original date clashed with my trip to Austria for the D One Gold Cup, pretty much my most important race of the year. Mike has agreed the move with the Merlins, I hope it is ok with you all? Interestingly for me we are going ...

Remember Yellow Peril? She has the BM insignia but is not a BM.

Classic pys for club racing

At the next meeting of our Sailing Committee we will be discussing using cvrda pys (having done the relevant conversion sum) for eligible boats wishing to take part in club racing. The idea is to encourage older boats onto the race course by giving them a better chance against modern craft. Does any...

Re: Baltic Wharf

I'm sorry we couldn't come; I have had a cold for a week now and am just fed up of it.

Never mind: Clywedog and Banbury were 'firsts' for us this year, I'm sure Baltic Wharf can wait until next year.

Re: Baltic Wharf

I look d up The Cottage to see if they allowed dogs, which they do, but also found they have changed hands to become part of a chain. Reviews weren't great and didn't tie in with the excellent reports heard previously. We could stay for a meal if it wasn't too long after racing.

Re: Proctor Centenary 2018

There was an Adventuress at Hunts for a while, then it got taken to Snettishm. Funny looking little tub. I know the owner of that helps. There is an Adventurer at Fishers Green.

Baltic Wharf

This will be another first time for me (following Clywedog and Banbury). Any useful knowledge anyone can pass on regarding dogs, launching, unloading etc? Even though I worked in and around Bristle for many years I never sailed here!

Hoping to bring the Finn. Will I need a winch?

Re: 2018 events

My trapezing days are over unless strictly necessary! Plus I will be looking after the Hunts open. It would be good to have something to motivate me to get the original mast rigged. I have already had the mainsail made. Lyndon better start eating some pies!

Pretty sure I saw a Spectrum at Wimbleball many years ago. Ian, if you wanted to steer Agamemnon for this you'd be welcome!

Re: 2018 events

If I have to be 'lucky' to be to sail in the Bosham event then I'm guessing I don't need to worry about the clash with the. Hunts open.

Re: 2018 events

That should work well then; we will be happy for people to leave boats at Hunts ready to go on to Aldeburgh.
