  • Hello

    I think second from left could be Peter May [catamaran]

    I was a founder of the club and I think we were formed in about 1956-1957  with the driving force being John Fisk so could be the anniversary .

    regards Sparrow

  • Hello

    Afraid not.

    I left in the 60s and went round the world in bigger ships.

    Is it still going?

    Regards

  • I have no idea, it was a bit before my time.

    Your travels sounds intriguing, care to elaborate.

    Kind Regards

  • Dave Atwell first on the left with Peter next to him sadly both of them no longer with us.I think the bloke on the right holding the lighthouse is Les Woolf  he worked for John Fisk building boats. 

    From Peter May’s brother Neil.

  • From the left John Fisk, Peter May (my dad) Peter Fairman, ?, Les Wolf. My dad was one of the founders of the club, when catamarans were first created as a sailing boat. They were designed by the Prout brothers from Canvey. My dad sadly passed away last August but I have lot’s of old photos and info from his days at Chapman Sands.

  • Hi Julie,

    It may be that John was sadly not with us in 1987/9 I bet they were raising a glass or two  to him though .

  • Hello

    Glad I was right about Peter May. Being a jazz fan he named his boat after  “Jelly Roll Morton” and I crewed for him once or twice.

    Regards
