Report now on YandY but for some reason Nikky's not been credited for her great photos.

Roadford National Rally

Well, what a great event! Huge congratulations to Ed who had put a lot of thought into this. The treasure hunt, the dinner and the cream tea were brilliant. Ed reminded us that 'it's all about the boats' and a great range of boats were present including a fleet of Lowrider Moths and Finns that the C...

Re: Bowmoor Rally

Sorry Ian, we've decided not to come. I was hoping to test a few sails on the wooden mast, clearly I won't be able to do that.

Re: Falling Attendance at CVRDA Rallys

I wonder, like Sam, if there's too many events and if that's having an effect. Despite being retired now I don't just go sailing so this year decided to do just 2 CVRDA events and 2 Finn events. If I'm free on an extra weekend I might do one or 2 more, but I'm not prioritising that. We're probably b...

Re: Classic Finn Travellers 2019

The next event in the Travellers series is the anniversary event at Roadford. We've had very good numbers of classic Finns sailing at Roadford in previous years so it would be really good to see a good turnout this year. If you know of anyone who's pondering, please encourage them to come and tell t...

Sorry I couldn't come, clashed with the Finn nationals but you did look very photogenic, the boat that is, not you Sam!

Raudaschl plate

Bit of a long shot but I've been asked by a guy restoring a Raudaschl Finn in Canada if I know where he could get a builders plate from as his is missing. Does anyone have one knocking around?

Re: Clywedog ~Rally 24th - 27th May

Yes, my sail also had a K on it as it dates from 1982 which is before the 3 letter designators were introduced.
Well done to Annabel!

Essex One Design

A beautiful 1949 Essex One Design on eBay for sale. Unfortunately way out of my price range but I'd love to own her having sailed and raced on EODs in my youth. What a boat for CVRDA!

Re: Classic Finn Travellers 2019

We had 3 Faireys at Bosham (the boats, not the helms) and had two wonderful days of good breeze, non stop sunshine and courses which took us up and down lots of creeks in the harbour. All the other boats were Devotis but we weren't last and enjoyed really good racing among the fleet. Looking forward...
