New classic and vintage yacht club is seeking members

The Classic and Vintage Yacht Club of Great Britain has been founded to ensure old boats are logged on to a register so that changing owners can keep tabs on their boat’s history.

Acting secretary Tim Blackman points out: ‘None of us has, or will, own one Classic or Vintage yacht for the yacht’s life. We are caretakers of these yachts of which there is now a finite number.’

Anyone interested in joining should contact him at 14 Belvedere Street, Ryde, Isle of Wight or email him at
