General National 12 chat / BURTON WEEK RACE RESULTS
« on: August 27, 2021, 08:37:24 PM »
First day of Burton Week started with a chill wind, but bright and became sunny and warm with a light breeze. 
There was a short postponement before the boats were allowed afloat followed by a wait while the wind shifts settled.
Both races were sailed in a light to medium shifty breeze. 
See attached the results for races 1 and 2.

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.


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.

General National 12 chat / Ian Proctor Centenary Rally 2/3rd June
« on: March 23, 2018, 04:58:22 PM »
The Class has been approached about the centenary rally which is in Ian Proctor's honour at Bosham Sailing Club, in Chichester Harbour.
The plan is for a Concourse d'Elegance on Saturday followed by a centenary dinner.  On Sunday there will be some gentle harbour sailing with a grandstand finish and various prizes.  There will be special visitors and the event will showcase the various classes which Ian designed as well as the hull designs he created for the Twelves (and other development classes).

We know that the current active vintage Twelve fleet does not include many of Ian's designs but we are sure that someone with one would receive a welcome at this event.  We are also aware that this clashes with an anniversary event at Yorkshire Ouse.

Please contact us if you are interested in this and I will let you have the full details.

General National 12 chat / Howard Elcock
« on: August 03, 2017, 03:12:22 PM »
We have today received the sad news that Howard Elcock has passed away.  Howard was a stalwart of the Class particularly in the Northern area.  He became a member in 1967 and owned eight boats over the years until 2010 when no longer owning a Twelve he became an Associate member.

In recent years he spent a lot of his time in Greece and it was there that he passed away and was buried in the country he loved.

Howard's sister who gave us this news also informed us that there will be a memorial service on the 3rd September at All Saint's Church, Gosforth, Newcastle on Tyne.

General National 12 chat / Vintage & Fest lost property
« on: June 29, 2016, 07:44:23 PM »
After everyone had left Burton SC to go home on Sunday afternoon an Ergolife Stol had been left behind.  It was assumed to belong to a Twelve visitor, probably a camper.  It appears to be brand new.

If anyone has lost this, or knows who it might belong to please contact us.
