Re: Baltic Wharf

Three Moths are going, there will be two from Greensforge and one from Bowmoor (me). Forecast at the moment suggest a decent breeze, maybe too much in the gusts and a bit of early morning mist followed by drizzle.....classic Baltic Wharf really!

Re: Bowmoor event

A big thank you to Bowmoor SC and to Tom and Sam in particular who went out of their way to make us all feel welcome during the weekend. I hope everyone who came enjoyed it as much as we did and that this event can become an annual fixture in the future. Thanks also to Pat for sorting out the result...

Re: Bowmoor event

I am planning to be at Bowmoor Sailing Club by late morning tomorrow (Friday) and should have access to keys for the entrance gate and clubhouse. Hopefully I will be there before anyone who is planning to arrive during the day ( I believe the Minisail gang are hoping to have a training session) so I...

Re: Hykeham Who's coming?

Hi Sam, We will be there again this year with the motorhome so please count us in for the Salad for the BBQ. We will probably have some extra meat in case Lyndon forgets to bring any? We were thinking of setting off a bit earlier on the Friday so as to miss the evening rush hour in which case we wou...

Re: Roadford Who’s Coming

Hi Alan,
We will be coming down on the Friday in the motorhome towing a Moth and we have booked our usual slot on the campsite so really looking forward to it. Lyndon and I are trying to encourage a few more lowrider Moths to join us so hoping for a decent turn out.
Regards
Ian

Re: Hunts - who is coming?

Another great event at Hunts in spite of the weed and, at times, lack of wind. Thank you to Nessa and Nikki for organising the whole affair including the evening meal at the Dolphin. Some great on the water photos taken by Nikki and posted on Facebook so thanks also for doing that as they help to sh...

Re: Hykeham meeting

Hi Sam, That all sounds good to me and I think that an earlier start on Sunday makes a lot of sense so that those with long distances to travel can get on the road at a reasonable time. We really enjoyed the Hykeham event last year so are looking forward to another trip to Lincoln in August. We have...

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

The Aldeburgh Classic event was superbly run yet again and Saturday’s testing conditions were very reminiscent of those from two years ago. Long beats against the tide are not exactly the Moth’s forte, but the downwind legs especially in race two were great fun despite being a bit hairy at times! A ...

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

We will be coming again this year with the Moth behind the motorhome and plan to arrive sometime on the Friday. Looking forward to the event and hoping for a little less wind than we had last time I sailed at Aldeburgh.

Re: sails and fittings

Hello, I may well be interested in some of the items you have unearthed during your clearout. If you have any photos I can let you have my email address or maybe I could come and have a look sometime next month?

Re: Swordfish sailors

I believe that there are still a handful of “swordies” still sailing, but I’m not sure if any are being raced any more. I used to sail them with my Dad out in Malta and remember them being nice to sail especially in a decent bit of breeze. The only UK fleets I know of were at Hornsea, West Riding an...

Re: Proctor 2018 - the search is on

That’s great, I really appreciate you letting me take the boat on your behalf. I will keep in touch so that nearer the time we can arrange a good time for me to come up and collect “Aggie” . I like the idea of being able to set her up here so I can take my time and familiarise myself with the layout...

Re: Proctor 2018 - the search is on

Hi Nessa, As I said before I would love the opportunity to sail “Aggie” at the Proctor event and could potentially team up with Lyndon if you would be happy to let two Moth sailors loose in her? If my retirement plans work out as I hope then I will have finished work before the end of April which wi...

Re: Magnum 8 (Winged, but not foiled moth)needs new home

Hi Ian, The CVRDA lowrider moth group seems to be gaining members at the moment so I think there will definitely be someone interested in the Moth you have described...I might even be tempted myself and you are not too far from me so would be easy to come over and have a look sometime. The hull numb...
