Even the Minisail was welcome, so a Kestrel should be no problem...

and I'll be there with my 'new of the world hack' hat on, so remember that if you say anything to me, (even good morning, hullo, how are you) then this will be considered 'on record' and therefore quotable. Word has reached me that Roger is not going to be there, maybe the threat of my publishing pictures of him topless has scared him off.

see you all then.............

An eventful and challenging weekend! :D :D :D

Once again Bosham served up superb sailing for all tastes, with Sunny late summer sailing on day one and arthritis inducing, buttock clenching terror on day two. :lol: :lol: :lol:

A report will follow, with tales of flying moths, mud skipping BMW MPV's, bacon baps and death rolls.

Thank you Bosham, I'll have another one please!!

Hope you all managed to aquaglide safely home. :twisted:

I've seen some good events this year, but the Bosham Classic revival takes some beating!! So many stunning boats, have some interesting pics. Good to see the CVRDA well represented with a certain Firefly sailed by our own Mr Briggs, Pat and Sandy in an Applecore and a hard working Nessa in a kestrel. I'm sure that there were other too but...my attention kept getting drawn to the well sailed Shelley Moth of Ian marshall, mind youm it was great conditions for a Moth of that vintage. Not sure how he would have faired on the Sunday......

I was on the RIB with the guys looking for the Concours winner, I do not envy them the job. So many good candidates; a nicely reworked Int 14, a couple of smart Merlins, the aforementioned Moth and a very, very well restored Jollyboat (and this is from an observer who doesn't rate the Jollyboat as a very good example of a fairey boat). Amongst the other boats, the Christchurch Coot looked good though I'd say it was eclipsed by the Aldebrugh Lapwing.

Please tell (I'd say "put me out of my misery" but I know where my money would be) - so who won the Concours?
