The restoration of Tideway TW233 was completed this month and boat returned to her delighted owner who thought she looked like new!   The photo shows the finished results, complete with blue sails, blue buoyancy bags,  blue halyards and blue tiller extension.  Watch out for this  stunning boat in the Lake District over this summer.

Bosham Sailing Club Classic Revival

Bosham Sailing Club hosted a fabulous weekend of racing for classic day boats and dinghies of various different classes and from many differents parts of the UK.  48 boats entered, including the local fleet and 13 from other clubs, members of the ‘Classic and Vintage Dinghy Racing Association’ and Good Wood Boat’s National Redwing R249.

On Saturday the westerly wind, gusting up to 28 knots for much of the day, provided trying but exhilarating racing.  On Sunday the conditions could not be more different with sun and light winds testing a different set of racing skills.

This exciting and evocative event was an excellent opportunity to race our Redwing and  enjoy the camaraderie of like minded sailors.  Thankyou Bosham Sailing Club for your hospitality and for putting on such an excellent event.
