Steve14-Apr-2008 10:52Hello Pascale I would like to use one of your photographs (suitably acknowledged of course) as the 'picture of the month' on the website of the International 12 Foot Dinghy Association.
Ben Harris' Vietnamese-built dinghy is already sailing at Restrangeot Point in Cornwall, where she will soon be joined by two new dinghies 'made in England'. Firedrake, built by Fox's of Ipswich in the late 1920s, was subsequently converted to Bermudan rig.
Royal Oak, the only survivor of the Dreadnought fleet at West Kirby Sailing Club is also being restored.
The Good Wood Boat Company, Cockermouth, Cumbria, is ready to start constructing 12' Dinghies to order. Michael Breese's 12' Dinghy, constructed in Vietnam but now in Surrey, England, is currently for sale.
Josie Farrar takes the helm with Joyce Uren as crew in the Ladies Invitation Race at West Kirby S.C.
Another contender for the title of the last club to sail 12' dinghies in the United Kingdom is Trearddur Bay Sailing Club on the Island of Anglesey, North Wales. On arrival at the sailing club on Saturday morning we were met with an easy 5 knot Northerly, I think a lot of tired sailors were quite happy about the prospect of lighter conditions.


Joal MacKenzie had a good day getting two 16th places and Josh Tonkin had a great result picking up a 15th to add to his very consistent 30th placings. The Green fleet got on the water for a couple of races today before the wind went to full throttle.
Not having been to an Opti Nationals before I have been blown away by the number and type of support boats that follow the Optis around – from a safe distance of course!
Peter Campbell, the Hobart based award winning sailing journalist has been writing articles about the regatta. Built 1923, This very pretty little boat has been rebuilt by current professional boat builder owner and is a very nice example of the type. As the first flight of the open fleet lined up for a start the wind swung 20 degrees to the left and the AP flag was hoisted.
Josh Hinks, Angus Higgins and Chelsea Higgins also did very well getting some great results in very trying conditions. Ben Hinks did well with another first and a fifth and continues to lead the South Australian Green fleet charge sitting in 3rd going into the last day. The back-board on the after seat is typical of a boat which was destined for a passenger to be rowed on occasions and that, in addition to eye bolts in the transom and the inside of the stem, makes us think she was probably originally destined to be hung in davits for a large yacht.


Oliver Snoad, Alexander Newman and Jonas Barrett had a great day finishing 15th, 16th and 22nd respectively.
From there it just got windier and windier until we were faced with 20 to 30 knot gusts interspersed with a few lulls for the rest of the day. Zac Wijesinha, Jack Higgins, Holly Schnaars and Benjamin Newman should also be very pleased with their races today. The 95a€™ Thendara and the Atlantide were both built at the same time so this fine little boat could have been carried on board either yacht. In the rebuild all the steam bent timbers were replaced and fastened with copper nails and roves.
Bronze rowlocks, Interesting back-rest to the after thwart, Grown oak knees to the after corners and the thwarts.
