Harry's Girl joins the Club.
There is a new addition to the fleet down at the Ancient & Vulnerable St Deny's Sailing and Rowing Club. Harry's Girl is a Scaffie built by Honour Marine and was bought to replace the 14ft Gaffer we sold at the end of last season. Club Captain Bill and Committee member John drove down to Salcombe in Devon last Friday to bring her back.
The thinking behind buying a Scaffie is that she should be quick and easy to rig with her un-stayed mast and balanced lug rig, which is a bonus for getting under the three bridges between us and open water. She comes with a good trailer and outboard so I'm hoping she'll see some action at Drascombe Association Rallies and the like.
