Holiday time – well sort of!!!!

Catsails taking a touring holiday! The UK events calendar has opened up again and we have three events coming up in the next four weeks so we are packing the boats, camera and Ness and heading off in the motorhome around the country. … We leave this Friday 17th September, travel, sail and photograph three events and manage a few days rest and exploring between each one before arriving back home ready to open the sail loft on Monday 11th October. All orders placed now will be made after we return from our break. Orders can be placed via the website shop and an automated reply will be generated with Sue sending you personal emails as soon as we return detailing your orders lead time.

Boats, walking shoes, motorhome time – oh and Sue and Ness behind the camera

Catsails enter the Vintage Vane Marblehead National Championship 2021 at Fleetwood

For pictures click the link

We both had a fantastic weekend at this great event, thanks to everyone for making us so welcome and all the advice. Thanks also to Wayne Stobbs and Tim Rees for all their help – very much appreciated . Nigel’s goal was to win a race having never sailed with a vane boat before Saturday! He achieved several wins even though he finished last in the competition. He did win the Concourse for his beautiful restoration -one of many lockdown projects.
