General National 12 chat / Combi Trailer wanted...
« on: August 10, 2020, 03:00:44 PM »
Hi All,
Have posted in the Ads section but no luck yet. I really need  an old combi trailer for my Paper Dart, N2679. I wont be able to keep her at the Club this winter as they have a new Comet fleet taking priority for under cover winter storage, so she needs to come home at the end of the season, but I cant really justify the cost of a new combi! So a plea for help...there must be dozens of old combi's suitable for a National 12 lying around in the dinghy parks across the country? Please let me know...if you have one, know of one, or where to go look for one!
PS Really after a combi, rather than a single trailer (which I have already been offered) as the trolly I have is also on its last two birds with one stone etc...
Many Thanks

General National 12 chat / Cramond BC Meeting in May
« on: April 14, 2014, 02:26:56 PM »
The first event for the Lairwell Trophy is being held at my home club (Cramond Boat Club) on the bank holiday weekend at the end of May.
†This†will†be†a 2-day event with 2 races planned†in the afternoon of†each day. Sailing will be held on a tidal area in the bay at Cramond, on the Firth of Forth;†this being a very safe sailing area, bounded by the Dalmeny Estate to the south and West, and a line of WW2 anti-submarine defences and Cramond Island to the East. This gives very good sea-conditions for a N12, there being almost no swell, but with clear and steady winds from almost any direction. Being tidal, there is some tidal effect in the area, but nothing that should affect our racing (perhaps one knot of tide).

The Club has excellent facilities for dinghy sailors, having spent a considerable amount of money on these in the last 2 years. We aim to offer Soup and Rolls immediately after racing and include this in your entry-fee.

There is secure overnight storage for your boats. The website link for the club is copied below.

Cramond Boat Club is located 6 miles from Edinburgh city centre and is based on the river Almond, in the historical village of Cramond. The area is steepd with history† with Roman and early industrial-age places of interest within walking distance of the club. see links below..

There is a social event (live music) on in the Clubhouse on the Saturday night, to which all entrants are invited. The Club bar will be open late during this.

The Club is looking forward to running this event and is putting in a huge effort to make the event happen, it being the first Open meeting they have run for years. We are wanting to showcase the National 12†to potential new owners so visitors will be made very welcome...we would really appreciate the support.
The NOR is in peparation and will be posted as soon as ready....
I can offer my spare room to the first that asks! ( I am a 5 minute walk away from the Club). I can also loan a China Doll for the weekend...again to the first that asks....
Posted below are two pictures I took at the Club looking down the River Almond from the dinghy park, with e Clubhouse on the right. The other at the mouth of the river, looking out at the sailing area.

General National 12 chat / Pre-War N12 on eBay
« on: March 21, 2014, 11:25:21 AM »
eBay item number 201054283074. Located in Dartmouth.Text and pics from ad. i have asked seller if there is a name or number...

Here we have a boat I dragged out of the bushes many years ago in the misguided belief that it was still within my abilities to save it.
I was told at the time that this was a pre 2nd world war National Twelve dinghy built by a yard in Exmouth. (These are the only details I have) The Date of 1900 was added only due to EBAY requirements
There is no rig and there is no trailer with this auction, she comes as the hull only with the few loose wooden fittings as shown seperatley and some attached bronze fittings.
There is nothing more to say really, my partner considering turning it into a planter, and have had an offer to turn her into bookshelves or a garden seat. But I would rather not.
Collection only and payment of cash on auction end/collection and to be removed off site within 7 days of auction end.

General National 12 chat / Ribbie on eBay
« on: June 17, 2013, 09:06:08 AM »
On eBay, located in Dunoon, west Scotland. I have been in touch with the owner who bought her only to get the trailer she is sitting on. He wants to find her a good home and is prepared to swap her for an inflatable yacht tender. I have asked about her identity, the name is Olivia which doesnt show up on our records. He cant find a number on the hull but has promised to dig out the sails to check what is on them. Interesting aft thwart which suggests she may have been serving time as ayacht tender or similar....
