Did you fancy competing in the Leigh on Sea Vintage Champs but don't have a boat?
Leigh on sea have some spare Vintage boats they are willing to lend to visitors. I did the event last year and it was a great day, I don't normal sail a wooden boat but it was a nice change and the racing was very friendly on a lovely starch of water so Id highly recommend taking them up on the offer or getting your own boat. Their Vintage event is on the Sat and a normal Solo Open on the Sunday so you can make a weekend of it, lots of nice pubs and restaurants in the town.
