Re: National Rally - who is coming?

I`m coming :D :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks to the generosity of a Hunts member putting me up ( should that be putting up with me) and a brave boat owner lending me her boat and partner.

Really looking forward to it.

Re: Cotton sails

I was always under the impression that the seams were close together to allow for stretching. A large gap between seams would stretch very differently to those close together thus allowing for sail shape to be maintained.
I really haven't a clue what I am talking about though.

Re: GP14 mast

Hi Ian,

you are welcome to it. There may be someone from here travelling to Roadford in July which may help.

GP14 mast

I have a very nice Super spars Alloy mast which must go. It was on my old GP14 which is sadly no longer. Its free to anyone who thinks they can use it.

I would prefer it went to someone who can use it as a spare than cut it up and give it to the local gipsies.

Re: Hornet £150

This has been discussed on the Hornet page, a real bargain and lots of fun. Not quite as competitive as the slightly later revolution era but still a lot of boat for the money.

She wouldn't win championships but she would serve you well club racing or just blasting about

Re: Restoration of a flying fifteen

Tim Coombes is your man if you can wait long enough for delivery. It will be a fantastic job and well worth the wait.

I cant wait to see her on the water in 2020 :shock: :D :D

Re: Avon River Rally - Long Distance 'Picnic' Race

Thank you it was a great day out. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.

For future reference, you now know a 25ft deck stepped mast wont fit under the bridge.
