From memory 2018 Hull number. She was commisioned at Swanwick in May / July time and px'd with Marine Secol in Brighton in May 1990 for a Moody 336. We were aware from Brian Sharp at Marine Secol that she had gone to the East Coast. Her original name was Circe.

Iota, my friends boat is 2024 but he knows your old boat, she is in Shotley Marina on the river Orwell, and spoke to her owner a while back - he's not in the owners association though.

Oooh Shotley, where I used to race a Jollyboat, J62 Juno, back in the 60's

Faster than it sounds...

"No single hull dinghy has ever exceeded the timed speed of the Jollyboat over a measured distance. Sailed by Charles Curry in 1954 off Cowes in a Force 5 wind, the Jollyboat covered five cables at a speed of 13.4 knots. The sea was one in which the heights of the waves were between 4 ft and 5 ft, and it was not surprising that Ralph Vines later in the same year put up an average over three runs of 17.8 knots in the smoother waters of Edgebastor Reservoir. Times trials over a distance have now gone out of fashion and it is certain that more recent and improved versions of the Jollyboat have gone faster since 1954. And there is little doubt that, after the trapeze was adopted in 1959, the 20 knot barrier was regularly exceeded."

Lovely boat, fantastic memories.

Steve
