Well done Gerald. An average speed of 38.46 mph. You obviously didn't have any of the problems that bug me when I move boats about the place! Nearly lost my mini sprint yesterday and consequently have to make a new light board today!

The thought had crossed my mind of bidding for her for sentimental reasons, and with the feeling that she should be in a museum somewhere, though it seems like that is no guarantee of safety. If there are any plans to purchase her I'd be interested in discussing possible ways of securing Gypsy's future. (My email address is )

So far it is a sorry tale and a bit of a shambles..!  Sadly the auction house are working for the administrator of the bankrupt charity and so have an obligation to do their best to maximise proceeds and not spend too much money trying to sort out the mess.

It seems that Gypsy is in Cardiff and her rig and bits are missing but probably in Eyemouth...  I gather from Facebook that our Chairman is on the case and so anybody even considering a bid should probably make contact with Gerald.

The Auction is today, and I was going in an attempt to buy Gipsy but it has been withdrawn from sale.
The auctioneers hope it will be in the September auction.

Does anybody know if Gipsy sold at the auction and if so for what price? (I have a long-ago association with her in that Alistair Dunnet and I borrowed her from Lionel Wilkinson and sailed her in the 1968 Burton Week)
