New Instruction- Westerly Griffin For Sale

Thursday, 17 May 2012

Some nasty things occurred in 1980, like the assassination of John Lennon and Johnny Logan got to number 1 with “What`s another year”! On the upside though, GPS was introduced and this Westerly Griffon started out in life and it really is someones lucky day as it has come up for sale! Please form an orderly queue to view this fine specimen. She is very, very well kept & cared for and has an extensive inventory and is easy to sail single handed, as she is equipped with “ Sailtainer in boom reefing system” and all lines are led aft. The vessel is epoxy coated below the waterline, has removable davits, an Aerogen wind generator & heating. I could go on but with space at a premium, check out the specification data & photos listed here and also bear in mind the upgrading and attention that the present owner has undertaken. It is Westerly Griffon lottery ticket time! Take a look at her, it could be you! To arrange a viewing contact Andy Wood broker at Boatshed North Wales.

Cob 200 - Pilot Race

Cob 200 - Pilot Race

Sunday, 14 August 2011

As part of the Cob 200 celebrations in 2011, The Madoc Rowing Club held a race that was a re-enactment of the historic requirement to provide a Pilot to the ships coming into Porthmadog Harbour. The Pilots and their crews lived in Borth y Gest and on the sight of an incoming ship would 'race' against other Pilots to get to the ship first and thus gain the service fee. Madoc Yacht Club rowers held a similar 'race' to a ship in the channel and it was very well supported by residents and holiday makers. Celtic Longboats from all over North Wales took part in the event with many participants and members of the public donning period costumes.
