Essex one design info needed

Post by chris » Fri Nov 24, 2017 10:37 am

I’ve had the following enquiry from Australia. Can anyone help please.

Hi

My name is Paul Pascall and live in Australia

My fathwer had an Essex One Design that he sailed and mohad moored in
Dover Harbour when he was in his late teens, early 20’s

It was called Mirage. I am not sure if it is still around. Any info
would be great
I would love to give my dad a framed photo of his boat for Christmas.
If not his boat then a photo of an early 1950’s image of an Essex
one design

Thanks In advance

Kind Regards

Paul Pascall

Plenty of info on Google. The class amalgamated with the Thames Estuary OD in the sixties and became the Estuary OD.
There's an Essex OD in the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
