New boat in town

Perth Sailing Club has recently obtained this 420 dinghy to add to our club fleet. While it needs a little bit of TLC to bring it up to sailing order, the elderly boat seems sound and should prove a useful asset to our training fleet allowing us to teach members the basics of trapeze sailing and spinnaker handling, once we get a spinnaker that is. That is the one major component which is missing so if anyone out there knows of an unwanted 420 size kite, let the bosun know.
We are currently replacing the foils which were damaged and looked like they might fail if over stressed and inside and out need a bit of cleaning and painting so we may ask for volunteers to help with scrubbing and polishing this and the Kestrel in a few weeks when we fully assess what is needing done.
Watch this space.
