Title: Classic Boat Revival 2021
Post by: Mike Storey on August 03, 2021, 01:37:09 PM
Sadly the Classic Boat Revival due to take place at Bosham SC on 4/5 Sept 2021 has fallen victim to covid-19 travel uncertainty and ability of local hosts to accommodate visitors in the current circumstances.  Visitors have always been an integral part of the event’s success and without them, it would just not be the same. Having now missed two years, the plan is now to ‘relaunch big time’ in 2022, on either the 1st or 2nd weekend of September. N12 Vintage Wing and N12 events calendar planners please mark those dates in your diary pending confirmation. It would be awesome to have vintage 12s at the event alongside many other classic boats.

My friend and I have just taken ownership of Crester 1289, built 1955 by J Swinbourne of South Shields.  It has now arrived in Bristol.  Assuming we are able to get it back on the water and are able to sail it (Along with losing considerable weight and a hip replacement), we would be very interested in attending a vintage event.  In the event of us getting it back on the water, we would be interested in any guidance regarding its value for insurance purposes.
