Some great news in these difficult times
It has been announced today that two of the fleet are winners in classes of the Classic Boat Awards 2020.
sb Blue Mermaid has been named as Traditional New Build of the Year, and sb Greta has been named as Centenarian of the Year.
Congratulations to them both.
Things seem to be moving fast now with Blue Mermaid.
Today we get these great pictures of her topsail being worked on at James Lawrence Sailmakers, where sponsor Maldon Little Ship Club’s logo is being applied.
Yachting Monthly has an interesting piece about the new Blue Mermaid which Sea-Change Sailing Trust is planning to build. She will be based on the blueprint of the steel-hulled barge blown up after hitting a German mine off the Spitway Channel in World War II. The new barge will be used to train sailing crew and the plan is that she will carry cargo again.
