Re: 2018 events

Assuming that the original dates that David H mentioned for the Proctor event at Bosham are still correct then Hunts no longer clashes which might prevent a conflict of interests. It would be nice to have some CVRDA representation at Bosham and although I don’t own any Proctor designs I have sailed ...

Re: moth cutting

When my Shelley was built in 1967 it would have had the red M in a blue circle as the sail emblem. In fact the low aspect Anderson Aerosail that came with the boat when I bought her still has that symbol. From memory and in line with what Rupert said earlier, the emblem changed in 1970 together with...

Re: Baltic Wharf

Hi Rod, It’s nice to know that you are following what is going on in the classic/ lowrider moth scene on this side of the pond. Also great to see your CMBA Facebook page so that we can see what is happening over there. As there wasn’t a Europe at Baltic Wharf the handicap issue never arose, but I wo...

Re: Old style gooseneck please

Are you looking for a proctor style sliding gooseneck or a fixed one like a needlespar or Superspar? If it’s a proctor type then is it the wide or narrow mast track? Depending on your answer I might be able to help.

Re: Merlin Rocket Adur 3 design - Shoestring - update

I know where there is another Adur 3 if anyone’s interested. It is really just a hull and the decks have already been removed by the previous owner ready for re-decking. The hull itself seems to be in pretty good shape and has been dry stored for at least ten years. If someone wanted to take it on I...

Re: Baltic Wharf

Leave a bright light on and the Moths will be there!
It looks as though there may be a few others joining Lyndon and me so fingers crossed for a decent turnout and some favourable conditions...if there is such a thing at Baltic Wharf?

Regards

Hi Peter, I have sent you a pm on the subject of events next year so once you have had a chance to ...

Re: 2018 events

Ian, if you wanted to steer Agamemnon for this you'd be welcome! Hmmm, now there's a tempting idea and I would love the chance to sail "Aggie" sometime. Are you thinking of crewing or do I need to see if Lyndon would be up for it? Two Moth sailors in a classic 14...what could possibly go wrong? Ian

Re: 2018 events

David, Unfortunately I do not own any Proctor designed boats, however, if you need someone to steer something like a Typhoon for example, while you take pictures, then give me a shout! I would quite like the opportunity to take part in this event, if it comes off, as the first boat I ever sailed was...

Thanks again to Tim, Pat and all at Banbury Sailing Club who helped make it another splendid day both on and off the water. Great to see a good variety of boats and it was nice that Ian and Matt came along even though they forgot to bring a boat! Sorry we couldn't stay for the quiz this time, but ho...

Re: Merlin Rocket 1028

Hi Sam, According to the Merlin Rocket Yearbook 1028 is Proctor mk 12 called "Arthur" which was built by Wyche and Coppock in 1960. Another example is 2040 which has been beautifully restored by Laurie Smart and appears regularly on the Thames circuit gaining good results, but it has been "carbonise...

Re: Polo shirts

Hi Nessa, Wendy and I would probably like one each so once you get the details from the supplier we can choose colours and sizes.

A big thank you to Hykeham Sailing Club and Sam Mason in particular for organising the first CVRDA event in Lincolnshire and being the perfect host on Saturday evening together with Steve Sallis who also did a great job as Race Officer and part-time fish rescuer! It's a shame that for one reason or ...

Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

Hi Sam,

Are dogs welcome and will there be space for our motorhome?
Format sounds fine and we are always up for a BBQ.
