Some older pictures of club boats
I think this was taken by Bob Parris. It is HSC club boat Merganser on the hard, probably for attention to some problem at the masthead. My guess is that it was taken at Bradwell on Sea during the 1970's.
I think this was also taken by Bob Parris. It is HSC club boat Meander, demonstrating HSC sailing techniques - boat appears to be over reefed for conditions - main oversheeted, jib right out - crew sitting on wrong side of boat - even so we manage somehow and we actually sail our boats further than most people do!
