I looked at the date on a cereal bowl and realised its been around a long time:-
1982 Skandia sponsored Osprey Nationals at Filey.
I remember we went with a big group from Lymington and had a lot of fun, only problem was fog and fishing nets.
Also Oscar Chess's crew Tiger turning up at prize giving in full make up which must have been a shock for the Skandia people giving out the prizes.
So what is your oldest keep sake and memories?

A "Kronenberg" branded pewter goblet which says "2nd International Contender, Locks SC July 1976"! One of the rare times I was in the choccies.

Nightmare trying to upload pictures to this forum these days, but these are my oldest sailing (proper sailing that is where you stand up and hold the sail) from the heineken series I did quite well in back in the day they're steins, bigger than me.

I've got one I think is '72.

The oldest one I've competed for (but not won!) is an 1875 vintage IC trophy.

Maybe the question should not who's got the oldest but who's got the tackiest? I'm sure I have some tiny miniature plastic cannons from some event somewhere in the loft
