General National 12 chat / Interesting video of winter sailing
« on: July 25, 2020, 02:36:07 PM »
I had an email from Paul Shingler  of N2679 Dolly Blotter fame - the original owner. He said he had found the 12 website via the Landamore's site.
I decided to look at the site and in their archives was a link to Winter sailing in Norfolk.

See below
I think we need to have a big change in global warming to replicate this.

Roland , When Graham had 3492 he used Alverbank Sails. The P&B's were probably purchased by later owners.  When I finished  sail making in 2009 /10 our design pattern info went to HD Sails.

The rig listed on the certificate seems to be the original dimension With a minute change in 2008.

The usual P & B rig is different with a much smaller jib area.

Last heard of Feb 2010 in Ilkley, unfortunately the boat has not been re=registered.


Patrick Pym sadly died on 4th December. Since he started his successful sailing career in National 12’s, designing and building the first of the wide breed of 12s that are seen today, you may wish to inform your members and / or post the short obituary below on the National 12 website. The full obituary may be found on the HRSC Website.
Best regards,
Stephanie Merry
Patrick Pym: 6th September 1936 - 4th December 2019
Patrick’s funeral took place on 30th December 2019. He was a long time National 12 competitor with half a dozen boats to his name, starting his career in Sidmouth back in about ’58 and then culminating in the 1965 ‘Lucky Number’ in which he won both the Burton Cup and the overall week at Thorpe Bay. That boat was particularly notable as the first of the wide breed of 12’s that we see today – a joint design and build effort together with Martin Jones.
Patrick was a long standing member of Hamble River Sailing Club and one of the six HRSC members selected for the 1972 Great Britain Olympic sailing team, competing in the Finn single-handed class.
The funeral was attended by an eclectic mix of people from the world of sailing: from ex-international Olympic sailors to those who had regularly competed with or against him in HRSC Wednesday evening races. Hugh Welbourn, who describes Patrick as “the one that welcomed an awestruck young (National) 12 sailor to the Club”, has written a full obituary, describing Patrick’s multi-faceted life, which focused throughout on boats and sailing.
Heartfelt condolences go to Patrick’s family from HRSC members.

Race 1- Marlow Ropes Salver

Hot, very light winds.  only able to sail one race. results

Sausage triangle course. The breeze died away  on second lap and by the second reach of the second lap the fleet was barely stemming the tide.
The Race officer shortened at the next mark but it still took 30 plus  minutes for the fleet to finish.

Please note that the two emails addresses for Pevensey Bay SC shown at the end of the NOR have changed since publication. To book camping use or to contact the club use


Now less than one month to the Pevensey Bay Championships!!   Please don't wait until the last few days to send me your entry!

Have you booked all the tickets you need for the Burton Week dinner?  The venue will be wanting to talk numbers with me soon!!

Crews are still needed.  Is there anyone out there who would like a weekend in the front of a Twelve, please get in touch.

Have you booked you camping space with Pevensey Bay yet?

See you at Pevensey Bay.

Hello all prospective Burton Week contenders.

Just over 8 weeks to the start of the event at Pevensey Bay SC and we need you to enter so we can get a plan going.
We particularly need to know numbers for the Burton Week dinner much earlier than usual as this will be at a hotel in Eastbourne and we therefore have less flexibility.
Also the end of the early entry discount is fast approaching!


with all the FLICKR chaos now seemingly sorted some of you might have got fed up with trying to view the sunday Gallery!

The link below is still valid[/size] 

FLICKR now up and running again  above links now working.

I am adding some more sunday pics today.
