If you are interested in viewing either of these little beauties, please call Club Treasurer Glenda Sampson at (902) 535-3141or email gsampson@seaside.ns.ca

Flying Junior

Fibreglass hull, aluminum spars, complete with all standing and running rigging and tired, but useable sails. Needs some TLC. Trailer not available. $250 as is.

Hobie 14 Turbo

This is a fast little catamaran complete with all equipment including roller furling jib, and some spares. The sails are a bit tired on this one also. $500 as is. Pictured above, sistership. Ours is blue.

Boat for SAIL

For the time being, the club owns and maintains this fine racing dinghy for use by members.

 

420 Racing Dinghy

This popular racing class dinghy is very exciting to sail - it is fast and delicate. The boat is in exceptionally good condition, with good sails, and lots of strings to pull - and a handy launch dolley. Club members are welcome to use this boat for fun, practice, and in the Wednesday night races.
