    JRA Member Ted Stone has asked me to post the following:

    We have been invited to join in the Brixham Heritage Sailing Regatta Saturday 27th May / Sunday 28th May 2017 - www.brixhamheritagesailing.org.uk/ . 

    James Thomas sailed Ivory Gull in it last year and asked the regatta committee if we could all come too this year.  There is a firework display and Brixham Yacht Club will be open to all entrants in the heritage festival.  Please check out the heritage web site for details of what is an excellent weekend and how to book your place.

    Brixham is home port for two junk rigged boats, Ivory Gull and Fly, who will both be there. It would be great if the JRA could be mob handed at this event.

    Please address any questions to Ted at tedstone@globalnet.co.uk or to the contacts on www.brixhamheritagesailing.org.uk/

    Gosh, that sounds exciting.  I should imagine there will be lots of beautiful boats to ogle.  Wouldn't it be great if we gave the gaffers a great display with lots of junks to admire?  Two is a great start ... where two or more are gathered in the name of junk rig ... we have a junket!

    Ted et al

    May I suggest that the title above and in the Members' Events notice board should have the date included.

    Hi Ted et. al,

    Junks and Gaffs - it's all too much for me and I've started to plan a long weekend away from Dublin to join you all. My boat will still be in the Netherlands so I hope to be able to join one of the other Junks, or a Gaffer if need be, just to catch some junkie photo-ops...

    Looking forward to meeting you all, 


    PS Jonathan - good point about the title - am looking into it!
