Does anyone have/know of any sails for a hornet?
I am looking at buying one (hornet that is !!) not too sure of the age but it is wooden, don't know if that will relate to age! Going to have a good look at it on Sunday
Does a boat only qualify for CVRDA if it is built before 1965 or if the design is before 1965?
Will report what i find. Suppose that will relate to if it is CVRDA able.

The design has to be before 65, and the boat more than 25 years old to qualify. We have 3 "wings", Vintage" for very old traditional construction boats, "Classic" for those designed and built before 65, and "Old" for those designed before 65 but built after. Examples might be a 1950's Tideway as a Vintage, a 1950's Firefly as a Classic and a 1970's Hornet as an Old. There is more somewhere on the site, probebly under "Wings". I'm sure Roger will be able to help on Hornet ages.

Hi

Know of a main and jib for sail, if you're interested? Buyer looking for £70 I believe. Mail me and I can put you in touch with her.

Pegasus I have a selection of old Hornet sails but they are old. 1 suit measured in 1976 one set earlier. Which boat do you have? The Hornet association are trying to put a register of all boats. Try posting on http://www.hornet.org.uk there are bound to be sails around.
