Sail number N287 GRP built by Turks in 1974, refitted be me in 2005 with raised floor/double bottom incorporating bu...

Re: Jollyboat meeting 2013

Hi Stewart, sounds good to me 8)

Glad Charlie enjoyed it, tell him we have new sails for next year :D

I'm happy to go with the flow, if we can get more J's at Bosham...

Re: Jollyboat meeting 2013

Hi Ed, good to hear from you.

Could you possibly send me the last register/list?

Also, I may be able to take on another Jollyboat as 325 is now siling/racing again :D

Best Regards,

Chris Wood

Re: Jollyboat meeting 2013

Nice to see so much interest in the Jollyboat 2013 Nationals :D

Could I ask all Jollyboaters to register their boats here so that we can get a list of boats and owners?

If that has already been done perhaps someone could update me?

Jollyboat meeting 2013

Hi All, Firstly I would like to thank all those who organised and took part in the marvelous and massive Bosham Classic Boat Revival, it must have been one of the largest dinghy events of the year! Saturday saw four Jollyboats racing and it was good to be able to sail against other boats of the same...

Re: Nationals 2012.

Many thanks to all at Bough Beech SC for a fantastic weekend. My thanks to all those who helped and supported me getting Jollyboat J325 back on the water after a very long period ashore (she probably got wetter inside than out thanks to some lack of expertise flying a trapeze artist!!) My special th...

Re: Jollyboat wanted

Mike, thanks for your post re 'Rocket'. I am sure that you are correct. As I recall the sail number was 216 or thereabouts, so as you say it was more than likely an early Merlin. Ed, the jollyboat in Cowes is sitting in a garden on a trailer partly covered. I am sending you an email with the contact...

Re: Jollyboat wanted

Hi Gary, it was a pre-merlin, can't remember the sail number now but it was very low, I'll see if I can find some photos. She had rolled side decks, clinker mahogany planked, swivelling mast with two sets of spreaders and diamonds, cotton sails and a fixed brass bilge pump which was continuously nee...

Jollyboat wanted

Hi All. I am new to CVRDA but have owned and sailed classic boats for many years including an original 'Rocket' and Brightlingsea One Design C11 'Grayling' which I owned for about 5 years and which is pictured on your website. I now sail a National 18 but I am interested in a Jollyboat although I kn...
