Michael Wilson owned this boat 25+ years ago. It is a one off designed by Chris Haworth from Blackpool. It has never been measured or registered as a 12, but has come up for sale. Her name is 'Jiggery-Pokery'

Edd Gerrard is the current owner, and the advert is:

"She comes with road trailer and launching trolley (not pictured) two sets of sails, cover . Could do with a bit of tlc but could be used straight away. Selling due to lack of time to use, I'd rather someone got enjoyment from her. Located close to J5 M65. Thanks for looking."

Excellent Tim see you there. Think it is going to be quite a select few!

Hello Angus

Iíll be bringing Baloo up from Ripon with Emma crewing for me. A bit of boat logistics first as Christopher is Opi Zone squading at Derwent the same weekend but we should make the briefing.

General National 12 chat / Coaching @ Burghfield Saturday 19th May

We're planning an early session National 12 coaching session at Burghfield SC on Saturday 19th May. There will be a good number of local boats and all levels are welcome. We'll probably do a combination a boat tuning, excersises focused on boat speed and maneouvers plus a bit of practise racing. We'll have the video camera to help with the debriefs so you can hone you skills and techniques.

Kick off (rigged and ready) at 11am, finish at 5pm

Please let me know if you'd like to join in

Happy sailing

We welcome you to Salcombe! The sailing can be hugely varied, tidal, pretty, fast, drifty super planes in 'the bag' and sometimes seaward sailing but never dull. Launch is from Batson about a 10 min sail to the start line. We will be at Batson.  The accommodation recommendations provided so far are sound. Last year the club was under new management (which didn't last but has now stabilized ) and is acutely aware that the offer to the 12 fleet fell short of expectations in 2017. The local 12 fleet are working with the club to do better this time and I'll keep you posted. I didn't want to make false promises after last year so thought it better to wait til we had a firm plan.  Para-docs.

Is anybody coming? Don't be shy, this has always been a good event in the past and you don't have to go through a flooded field to get to the club house. And don't forget if you want a chance of the Lairdwell or Border trophy you have to do this event.

As a lifetime dinghy racer at Salcombe, I accept that sailing here can be a bit like Marmite, and strangely addictive, however it is never short on interest.

Sailing and launching is from the Batson Boatpark.  SYC usually try and set up a deal with the Harbour for competitors. can provide you with lists of B&B's and Campsites.

Higher Rew Farm Campsite is owned and run by the Squires who have more than a passing interest in National 12s

But it is 10 minute drive out of Salcombe.

Hope that this helps.

That's a shame Paul.

Anyone who was planning to go to TVSC, you're welcome to attend the sprint racing at RHYC on Sunday, first race 10.30. In the past 12s have been allowed to turn up and pay £5 if they're not RHYC members.

We're planning to run 6 races.
