This year our Classic Boat Day coincides with the anniversary of the first in a series of races between yachts belonging to the Fairy Class. These historic races took place on 6 June 1906 and 104 years later four of the original fleet of eleven yachts will once again take part in a series of races to mark this anniversary.

The fleet, far from reducing in size, is gaining new members with two more Fairy Class yachts under restoration, one to re-enter racing this year and a second boat next season.

Anyone owning a classic wooden yacht or sailing boat is welcome to join in the activities at LEYC. For more information please contact Fred Ternan on 028-6862-1666 or e-mail: fredternan@btinternet.com
