Bosham Classic Boat Revival to celebrate Ian Proctor's Centenary, 1-2 September 2018

by Nicky Chapple 29 Jul 2018 20:06 BST 31 August - 2 September 2018

Bosham Sailing Club is to host the Ian Proctor Centenary Rally during its annual Classic Boat Revival, 1-2 September 2018.

The Bosham Classic Boat Revival is now recognised as the premier annual event for classic dinghies so it is a fitting event at which to celebrate one of the undisputed greats of sailing dinghy design. Many of Proctor's designs are expected to attend including the Osprey, Kestrel, National Twelves, National Eighteens, Merlin-Rockets, Minisail, Wanderer and Wayfarer, and Topper..

The Classic Boat Revival is now in its 8th year and we are expecting a good number of classic racing dinghies, many of whom attend every year, from all over the UK and abroad, plus a significant number of the most iconic Proctor-designed boats still afloat to gather as a fitting tribute to this remarkable designer.

Over the weekend we are planning a series of five races, starting from two committee boats, with entrants split into three fleets.

Subject to interest, there will also be a series of low key harbour races for a fourth fleet dedicated to Proctor designs who do not wish to compete in the classic boat fast, medium and slow fleets.

Prizes will be awarded for racing and there will also be two prestigious Concours d'Elegance awards – one for the classic boat fleet and one for a Proctor-designed boat.

There is a full social programme with a Gala Dinner at the clubhouse to celebrate Ian Proctor's remarkable career on Friday 31 August and on Saturday 1 September there will be a casual club supper with live music for all to enjoy.

We are very grateful to our sponsors Hartley Boats, Topper International, Michael Cover ADR, MPI, Verisona Law, Haines Boatyard and Pussars Rum.

Full details of the event including entry forms, NOR and SIs can be found on the website, classicboatrevival.co.uk/official-documents

We look forward to seeing you there!
