An A.J Tipping all wood solo, an ideal first solo for someone joining the class like I did. This boat has a separate road trailer and launching trolley. Both in good condition. The outside of the hull was repainted with internationals two pack paint and a couple of years ago the decks were stripped back to the wood and re varnished. Over winter it has been garage stored. Comes with two sails both with correct numbers, a practice sail made by Edge sails and a racing Dacron North sails both have always been dry stored. Super spars M7 rig. Undercover and flat travel top cover are available for an extra £100 they are both in great condition. Stored and sailed at Trimpley Sailing club near Bewdley £900 Contact me via email

In Vintage Section
At my club myself and another student (both at university) have vintage solos as we love the boat and find its much more challenging to sail a solo whic attracted us to them. We would love to do the vintage champs but havent attemped it as its always so far away! (we're midlands based). Will it always be so far away or is it going to move around a bit to encorage people with old boats in all the other areas? Personally id like to see it in a more central place such as Rutland, Bowmoor and carsington which would be more accessible. Or moving the coastal venues each year not just south of the M4 so its not as hard for people like us who love the class but can't justify trecking half the length of the country.... Does anyone else share this position? what's the future of the vintage section besides the champs down south each year?

hi all, ive come accross an old solo in a really bad way and i was thinking of buying it for its combi trailer. however id like to fit some cradles if i did as it would be better for the boat but dont know where to get one.... is it a worthwhile venture or know of anyone in the midlands who would be looking at parting with a combi trailer for a sailor on a budget?
