Ribbed' National 12s are the earliest boats within this development class, built of ribbed construction, or, to use boat building parlance, 'clench laid and timbered'. The boats involved have all been kept sailing through the hard work of their owners and large quantities of copper nails, brass fittings, varnish and a lot of loving care!

Spectators are more welcome and we look forward to seeing you all again on Sunday for a fun-packed morning. 

Remember to bring a hat, shorts and your sunscreen.
