Re: Clywedog National Rally/AGM 26th -m 29thAug

Hallo Keith,
As Lois suggested we are going to B and B in Llanidloes as we we have too many aches and pains to sleep in the smaller camper we now have…but we need it to tow the boat. Amy and I are going to sail and she will be camper banning.
We’ll arrive sometime Saturday.

Re: Classic International 14 for sale

This is what Edward Warwick said about your boat….
not the one I built in 1975/1976 that was an Opus mk2 and I believe it was wrecked in Whitley bay. I built Brown Trousers for Tom Trevelyan and it was shown new at the London Dinghy exhibition that year.

Re: Classic International 14 for sale

Just saw that this was half built by Warwick. Eddie Warwick. I was at college in Winchester with him doing the same course. I know he went on to built a 14 and I believe he won something in it…not sure what though. Small world!

Re: Is Baltic Wharf on?

Yes I emailed the address given on their website but have not had a reply. Only Baltic wharf members can access their calendar so I cannot even find if they have a fixture written in.
So I’m making other plans and will assume there is no event.
