Gillespie has had a quick few coats of varnish on the sides here and there and will be headed for the sailing club tommorow.

Been out racing tonight with my 8 year old boy wind was light sea was not too choppy and I would guess that on corrected time we would have won.
we were put in fast handicap and the only boat infront was a rs 400 we beat everything else over the water, so there is life in the ole boat yet

I've just bought Gillespie from Keith. She is in fantastic shape and it is my hope that she will be the backdrop of many great memories for my children.

She will be kept at Alton Water .

Well done she is an amazing boat , probably the only boat I regret selling, still very quick in the right conditions. I'm often over at Alton water looking forward to seeing her out.

Gillespie now sails from HISC on the south coast, first sail with our son (age 9) in 20 knots.  Great fun to be back in a twelve, new sails underway and heading to the inlands for our first event.  Superb boat.


Dynamic Sails added 5 new photos.New sails for the N12, good breezy day to try them up and make some changes to the rig.  Looking forward to trying them out ourselves.  Have a great weekend...Dynamic Sails
