The Old Gaffers Association

The name says it all, really. Rallies, races and socials for gaff rig enthusiasts, and jolly good stuff too. Their site has some great photos, as you might expect, and some of the best are on their photo competition page. There’s also a calendar of events for 2007.


The Motorboat Museum

The nice folks of the Classic Motor Boat Association suggested I should link to the Motorboat Museum near Basildon:

There are some stunning exhibits (see El Zonco below), but as a father of kids of ten and twelve, I must say that judging by the website one of the nicest things about the museum is that its staff seem to have given a lot of thought to entertaining children who visit.
