Bill was a stalwart of Ranelagh Sailing Club since the 50's and sponsored the DeMay Trophy that was made by Chris Barlow for the Vintage Merlin Series. His funeral is planned fo...

Re: do you have a spare rescue boat?

Sorry to hear of the vandalism! Ranelagh probably has a couple of race marks that could be borrowed for a few months if someone can collect from Putney.

Pictures of a very dusty Neptune, including Trophy board, are now up on Ranelagh's web pages.

Re: Vintage N12 for sale

No more details of those sails which are in Brixham. Neptune won our winter series twice in 72/3 and 74/5 when the likes of Michael Jackson were sailing at Ranelagh. Hope to take some pictures later today.

David's sister has also found some more sails in Galmpton including cotton, though the mice have got at some of them. She also has sails with 2 inverted arrows, don't know what those are?

Sadly, due to the deaath of one of our members, David Wield, his National 12 Neptune, 1567 is for sale. This boat has been stored inside at Ranelagh since I have been a member and is pulled up. A look inside revealed two sets of sails and two wooden booms. It looks sound if in need of varnish and wo...

If you win a race your handicap gets reduced and if you finish last, it ...
