Retrospective planned for one of YM's artists

Fid Harnack was one of the great artists employed by Yachting Monthly during the 1930s and 1940s.

Now the Mersea Island Community Association, based on the Essex marshland islet where he lived and worked, are planning an art exhibition of all his works.

He was a prolific water-colour painter and a good friend of YM’s legendary editor and shoal-draught boat designer, Maurice Griffiths.

So far more than 50 paintings have been collected for the exhbition but organiser Peter Clements would like more. If you can help call him on 01206 384656.
