C44 Janice Available For 2019 Season

As many of you will remember, C44 Janice was beautifully restored by Rob Maloney just a couple of years ago, but ill health has made it impossible for her owner Richard Austin to race her since.

She is actively for sale, but with no buyer on the horizon Richard has contacted us with the most generous offer to make Janice available to a suitably experience team for the 2019 season.  There would be no charter fee but the borrower would be expected to cover insurance, maintenance/repairs and running costs.

The boat does have a road trailer but no launching trolley and she also needs a spinnaker (although I am sure we could find a lone spinnaker from the fleet somewhere if needed), but otherwise she is complete and in outstanding condition having been carefully stored since her restoration.

She is a beautiful boat and it would be wonderful to have her out on the water with us this year when we have such a terrific surge in interest/numbers again, so if you would like to find out more please contact Richard Austin on r.austin144@btinternet.com

RIP Jean Thomas

It is with great sadness that we share the news that BODOA President Jean Thomas passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning 20th March 2019 at Farrar’s Hall Care Home, Huntingdon at the age of 94.

Jean was the daughter of BOD designer and builder Robbie Stone and indeed BOD number 1 Jean was named after her. She was always a wonderful supporter of the BOD fleet and even when her health began to fail she continued to keep abreast of our goings on. Unfortunately Jean was not been able to visit Brightlingsea due to bad health for the past few years but she often talked about her family life in the town and of time spent with her father at the James & Stone yard.

Jean’s funeral will take place on Monday 29t April 2019 at Noon. The funeral service and burial will take place at Barton Glebe Woodland Burial Chapel CB23 7BN. Family flowers only but donations can be made if desired to either the Alzheimer’s Association or RNLI West Mersea Lifeboat Station

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this most difficult time.  Details of her funeral will be published as soon as they are available.

Help Needed To Turn March Hare Saturday 23 March

All hands on deck. Our newest BOD owner Matt Crittenden needs a hand to turn March Hare over this coming Saturday 23 March at 09.00-09.30 at Hawthorn Cottage, Church Rd, Little Bentley.  If you can help please contact Matt on 07841 408451 or aukm22@gmail.com so Matt can be sure he will have enough people.

Fi confirms she will be there and will hopefully be able to drag Alan out to help too. But we  need about 10 or a dozen people to be able to turn her safely. Who else can make it? Please let Matt know as above.
