My name is Neil Mickleburgh from Lowestoft and have in the past built, sailed and raced my old Pegasus 700 No156. However, the mature of my e-mail is that I have a Pegasus 700 & 800 either of which I hav'nt used for some time. The 700 is the shallow fin fractional rig type in need of a good tidy up, mainly cosmetic, it has an outboard in the well & some new sails.

The 800 is the wing keel fractional rig type with inboard diesel.again this boat needs finishing and tidying but with little expense and has several sails.

Both these boats have been on dry land for many years and manufactured around the time of 1990ish. If they are of interest  I can climb on board and check the sail numbers.If any of your members would be interested in a low cost boat  then please contact me and have a look and make an offer.

Unfortunately my family are not interested in sailing so they are wasted sitting doing nothing and deteriorating. I understand there are many of your members with Pegasus boats, I can be contacted by e-mail or telephone;

Dear NRSC Members

The NRSC Committee held a teleconference meeting on 23rd March and, taking into account the Coronavirus situation and government guidelines, agreed the suspension until further notice of physical Committee meetings, social events, racing, R&R and First Aid training together with any other activity that involves close contact.

At the time of the meeting we discussed how the Anchorage might sensibly still be used for day sailing, but this was before the Prime Minister’s address to the nation. Our understanding now is that all unnecessary and recreational travel is forbidden until further notice, which we interpret as including travel to our boats for a sail and the use of our clubhouse. We ask that all our members respect that instruction, which is for the common good.

It’s a pity that such an exciting and creative start to the 2020 programme has had to be set aside, but we must trust in better times ahead. Now is the time to say thank you to those involved in all that has been achieved so far this year, including the successful series of three R&R presentations and the preparatory work for the Fitting Out Lunch, the Spring Regatta, the RNLI Collection Day and the Discover Sailing day. The way that the new Committee has worked together with the support of the membership has been truly exemplary.

The Red Book has been printed and will be made available to you as soon as possible. You will notice that some members have changed their boats while others have been playing musical chairs and changing hands within the club, and even making name changes. All this is indicative of a vibrant, enthusiastic and forward-looking Club.

Please continue with your contributions to these Newsletters which is much appreciated and a great way to continue supporting each other when we cannot meet. It is good to hear and share your news even in these difficult times.

I am now going to find out what “gardening leave” really means and have a Skype lesson so that I may keep in contact. Please do keep in touch with other members who may need your support, join in with the Club's Facebook messages and continue to contribute to these Newsletters.

Take care and all the best,

Michael Sparrow  Commodore
