Re: Proposal for AGM

Yes, I think it is a good idea to move forward and hopefully encourage a slightly wider range of entries. In Moth terms it takes us neatly to an era where the hulls were becoming narrower but carbon rigs were still out of reach for most.

Cheers

Re: Hykeham Meeting

Make that 3, and I hear the entertainment is arranged too in the form of Paul Jago's moth. That means 4 if he can stay in it long enough to get to the start line!

Re: French Moth

Thanks for sharing this Alan, I suspect Dougal will be interested because it looks very much like the Westell designed 505 type moth or similar. I have posted it on the lowriders facebook page in case anyone can add more info. https://www.facebook.com/groups/422607964597474/?multi_permalinks=1140936...

Re: Campsite at Roadford

I booked last week and got pitch 12, which is hardstanding with lekky and behind the same hedge as you Lois.

It does seem like the availability is telling lies :roll:

Re: Dinghy Show 2019

Thanks Pat, It was an honour to fly the flag of the CVRDA! We had a great opportunity to back up Dougal's talk and display a range of moths to illustrate 90 years of development. The stand space, backboard displays, timeline boards, video display and individual boat descriptions were all provided an...

Re: Trolley tyres

That's exactly what I was suggesting Keith, but the ready made article. I didn't realise they were available like that!

A little more expensive to buy off the shelf than converting existing trolley wheels but you get shiny new wheels without bending your best cutlery. Seems like a good deal :)

Re: Trolley tyres

I agree most trolley tyres are not as strong as they used to be. How about using the trailer road tyres instead? They are usually 6ply and can be fitted to trolley wheel centres easily by hand / cycle tyre levers / best cutlery etc. The rolling radius is slightly larger than standard trolley tyres b...

Re: Big Brother's collection....going under the hammer...

You're quite right Ed, its not just old boats that appeal although they are considerably cheaper and need to be gathered up now while we can to make our fortunes later (thats my excuse anyway). What a fabulous collection of rare and obscure vehicles, thank you for sharing them. "Ebay in one hand and...

Re: Hykeham Who's coming?

Thanks to Sam and all at Hykeham for a great weekend of competitive sailing and socialising. The Race teams managed to get 3 good races in each day despite the unpredictable winds. It's a shame that the event couldn't have been better supported because it is an ideal venue, easy to get to, and a mos...

Re: Roadford Who’s Coming

Hi Alan,
I am planning to travel down on the Thursday, passing through on way to Falmouth museum with my Dad. Will it be ok to leave the boat at Roadford until I take up my pitch on Friday?
Actually, as Pat and Sandy will be there, I might already have some 'minders'!
