The Blue boat will be ready for sale in a couple of weeks subject to delivery of a transmitter and 1 PG mast tube. If you know anyone who is interested please ask them to drop me a note either by this site or my facebook page.


The price will be £1800 and the full spec is below


Presented in immaculate condition, this boat was 15th in the Veterans Championships being my first event in the IOM fleet. It was sailed for half a season and then replaced with a Britpop. It was refurbished recently, with any leaks traced and filled so will sail dry.


Winner of many club races at Emsworth and Frensham Pond. Whilst it is not quite a Britpop, the design is well proven and one finished 6th in the last ranking event of the season.


Boat registration 4624, measured by Paul Brooks at Gosport
