Re: Finn buoyancy

The boat in the garden has four buoyancy bags laced in behind canvas flaps. I have taken them out because there was water behind them. Just this post has told me I don’t want to keep another boat where I need a bucket - all my buckets are busy in Aggie and the Wayfarer, the Taylor Finn doesn’t need ...

Re: Fairy Finn

I have had an awful lot of messages from people asking for this Finn. Unfortunately for the seller it’s worth a lot more than he sold it for, since the work needed doesn’t seem to be that major and it has the potential to be a lovely boat. My plan for the moment is to get it undercover so it can dry...

Fairy Finn

I have bought the Finn that was for sale on Facebook this week, and it will be arriving home tomorrow. I really don’t need another Finn, oranyboat to be honest, I just didn’t want to see this one broke up for spares. I’m happy to pass it on to someone who will get it back on the Water d hopefully ra...

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 ...

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?
