NEW Trail Sail Trophy

The LR Scow is an easy boat to tow.  To encourage members to participate in Association events even when these are held away from their home club, for example this year's rally in Chichester Harbour or the Nationals, and so to sail with members in different locations, John Turner has presented this new trophy. 
It will be awarded annually to the member who has towed their LR Scow the furthest distance to an event.  This unique and beautiful but lighthearted trophy (shown below) has been crafted in glass on an oak base by Jane Pitt-Pitts.

A day's sailing took place on Wednesday 15th July 2015 in Chichester Harbour with Association members from Lymington/Keyhaven joined with local scow sailors in a ‘potter’ with a picnic lunch and supper to finish.  
Report to follow.

John has modified his website to include a news section.  To try it out follow this link:


                   ASSOCIATION LOGO 
This is how it appears on a sweatshirt.
There is a certain amount of flexibility in the design, in that one can specify a) the hull colour and b) the sail colours. 
The name of the boat and the sail number can be added to further personalise it. 
The design can be applied to sweatshirts, polo shirts, etc. and scaled accordingly.  We will have samples on display at the coming Nationals and at the AGM.
Available from Rainbow Copy,  Tel: 01590 673186 
Change of Ownership.
In order that we can keep track of all the Lymington River Scows we ask that all owners selling or transferring ownership of their boats, notify the change and return the Ownership and Buoyancy Certificate to the Hon. Secretary.   This will ensure that new Owner's Certificates are issued to the new owners and keeps our register of boats up to date.
