Re: 1965 International 14 free to a good home! - gone now!

Dear all, K871 'Aquamarina' has now been collected and is on her way to her new home in Cumbria. She was great fun to sail for the few months we had together, but sadly, without a dry place to keep her when off the water, she was too high-maintenance for me. I hope her new owner can keep her sailing...

I sailed it for a few weeks at Alton Water, but unfortunately the reservoir was then closed for a few months because of an outbreak of blue/gree...

Re: Aldeburgh Classic Weekend 2018, June 16th and 17th

Greetings, all! I have just acquired an old wooden International 14 (K871, 1965 I think), and took it out for its first test sail this afternoon.
