Re: Aldeburgh YC 3rd and 4th September 2016

Hello, Wendy and I are also planning to continue Eastwards from Hunts and do a bit of touring on the way across to Aldeburgh. We will be in a motor home towing my classic International Moth and will probably drop the boat off on Thursday if that's ok with the club? We have campsites booked for durin...

Re: Help WITH MY pegasus

Hi Neil, What number is your Pegasus, is it wood or GRP and where do you plan to sail it? I used to sail a fibreglass peggie number 221 in Malta many years ago, but I am always pleased to hear of one that is still going strong and being cared for. Who did you order your cover from in the end, some m...

Re: 1973 Merlin Rocket

Hello and welcome to the CVRDA forum, it's always nice when another classic wooden Merlin appears, particularly when it's an example of design that was pretty rare to start with. The Rapidity design by Tony Watts was his final design and I think that there were only ever three of them built by John ...

Re: National Rally - who is coming?

Hi Nessa, We will be coming to Hunts again for the National Rally and are planning to arrive in the motorhome on Friday evening although not sure which boat we will be towing yet. Please count us in for the AGM and barbecue. Looking forward to meeting everyone again as it seems a long time since the...

Re: Clywedog 9-10th July

Sorry Keith,
I'm afraid that I can't make it this either as I am in Germany on a training course until the 20th July. We will definitely try and come next year all things being equal. Hope it all goes well and the weather gods are kind.

Re: Staunton Harold in June

It sounds as though we missed a great event although not through choice I hasten to add as I am in Germany on a course at the moment! So I am hoping that the positive feedback and healthy number of entries might tempt Peter and the events committee at Staunton Harold into running it again next year?...

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

A big thank you from Wendy and I to all those at Severn Sailing club who made us so welcome and kindly let us sail with them on Sunday to get used to "River" conditions. I found that Sunday's lessons proved extremely valuable when it came to yesterday's picnic race which was certainly a novel experi...

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

Hi Keith, I should ble to come up with an appropriate Europa Moth handicap, but first I need to know if you are planning to use the old 3 figure CVRDA type numbers or the current RYA system with a few additions for boats not covered? I am planning to come over on Sunday morning with the Shelley Moth...

Re: Baltic Warf, April 9th

I would like to add my thanks to those of Lyndon and Giles to all those at Baltic Wharf who helped run things for us on Saturday. Also a special thank you to Lyndon for bringing an extra boat and being brave enough to let me borrow his beautifully restored Stockholm Sprite. Unfortunately my moths ar...

Re: Baltic Warf, April 9th

Anyone else coming to Baltic Wharf on Saturday for the first event of the year or is it going to be just the Moths that have seen the light? I am hoping that a few more will make the effort in spite of the lack of posts declaring an intent, particularly as sailing in the dock is a rather unique sail...

Re: New venue in the darkest Midlands

Hi Peter, The dates are in the diary so planning to come as it looks like a great place to sail and will make a perfect alternative to Blithfield which doesn't feature anymore. Looking at the posts so far it wouls seem that a decent turnout can be expected so really looking forward to it. Regards Ian

Re: Any interest in a long distance river race as a CVRDA op

Great idea Keith and dates permitting I would certainly be interested in giving it a go. Haven't really done any river sailing since my days at Trent Valley longer ago than I care to admit. Should make an interesting change although I don't think it would be a venue for the Magnum! Cheers and see yo...

Re: Meeting at Hykeham anyone?

Hi Sam,

Depending on dates etc and how well it fits in between other events I would be up for it especially as we used to sail there when I was at RAF Coningsby in the 70s and it would be nice to go back and see how things have changed since we were last in Lincoln.

Best Regards

Ian

Re: Aldeburgh YC 3rd and 4th September 2016

Wendy and I quite fancy bringing a boat across and maybe staying over in the area for a few days either side as it is a part of the country we haven't really explored. If it doesn't clash with the Bosham CBR so much the better although I didn't manage to get to that event this year anyway. Is there ...

Re: Baltic Warf, 14th Nov, Final event 2015

Looking forward to it - can we pre-order wind this year? If you look at the current forecast on XC weather for Saturday your wish may well be granted with 40mph gusts at midday! A lot can change between now and then, however, so I will be monitoring things as the week progresses. I try not to allow...
