Fairey Racing Dinghies Booklet - newly issued

Post by Chris B » Wed Feb 12, 2014 6:41 pm

Thought you might wish to be made aware of a booklet produced by my friend Charles Lawrence entitled Fairey Marine Racing Dinghies and Utility Boats 1958. It is produced from a detailed leaflet produced by Fairey in 1958 detailing all the racing dinghies and utility boats being produced by them at that time. It can be purchased direct from Charles for £9 including postage. Contact him on his email czczcz@me.com

Charles has for a number of years been closely involved with the Fairey Owners Club and Classic Offshore Powerboat Club and shortly after his retirement started producing booklets as a hobby. He is very good at it.
