RBOD Class – BLUE JACKET Restoration & Fund-Raising lunch
With the RBOD fundraising lunch just 4 weeks away (Sunday 26 February @ RBYC) it is a good time to provide an update on the restoration of BLUE JACKET where the much needed funds will be put to good use. (BLUE JACKET was owned for many years by David Beale, 'The Wily Fox' who was very hard to beat in light airs).
The photos give an idea of the enormous number of man-hours that Alec Shelley and Ticker Cable have put into the restoration which is now entering the final stages. When completed BLUE JACKET will be virtually as new and the marine equivalent of Trigger's broom. She will be the latest RBOD to emerge from the very successful restoration programme which relies on the generosity of the supporters who, over the years, have kindly dug deep to help preserve this iconic local class.
Please do you best to come to the lunch on Sunday 26 February at the RBYC where you will have a fantastic meal, great entertainment and the opportunity to bid for some highly desirable lots on offer from Ant & 4Deck; the auctioneers Sothebys failed to employ. Reserve your place by booking in with the Club firstname.lastname@example.org
