8253 – ‘You can call me AL’
The Association Demo/Charter boat is now up and running!
CURRENT STATUS: 09/04/2019 - At Maidenhead SC.
The idea behind the boat is to encourage non-Albacore sailors into the fleet by giving them an opportunity to try out a brand-new boat, either at a local club, or by charter for use at an open event.
The boat is currently at Maidenhead Sailing Club and will be moving to South Cerney Sailing Club in time for the Inlands on 4th/5th May 2019.
It is our intention to try and make the boat available at local clubs in proximity to the open event circuit this year.

The boat comes fully kitted with covers, combi trailer and lighting board, and even full race insurance cover. So, for anyone that would like to charter it, it really is just a case of hook up and tow it to the open meeting event – or if really lucky it will already be at the venue.
We will post details on this page of where the boat will be as it moves around during the course of the year.
If you know someone who would like to charter the boat for an open event please email:
We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but priority will be given to non-Albacore sailors in the first instance.
