Sorry to dredge up an old thread (but it is about the olden days!)

I have just been clearing out my late mother's loft and came across old copies of sailing mags.

They are heading for the skip unless anyone here wants to save them. Free to a good home (with perhaps a small donation to the Weldmar Hospice Trust).

May be collected from Dorchester/Weymouth/Poole area or Maidenhead area (or posted at your cost).

All issues from 1 to 48 of "International Dinghy Magazine" (later "Dinghy & Boardsailing") Winter 1977 to Sept 1981

Also

About 15 copies of "Yachting and Boating Weekly" from 1974 and 75

Also a few (8) Late 70s issues of Y&Y

Plus 3 copies of "Dinghy Sailing" (75 & 76)

Reply here if interested or pm me.  They must go quickly.

I'm very interested; there's not much chance to get that sort of historical
stuff here in Oz.

Chris, I have just had a look at what it may cost to send to Oz - at a rough guess it would be around £100 for carriage (based on 15kg), so I assume that makes it  a non starter. 

Any other takers?

No doubt they will be passed around at Roadford in the summer.
