1964 National Championship at Plymouth PDF Print E-mail
Written by Martin Egan   

According to the list of past Champions in the yearbooks, the winners were

1st B Tomes 811 Spectre
2nd D. Wines 1086 Jaunty Jen

Oddly in the British Pathe newsreel they list Pat Edyean and Veronica Moore of Plymouth in dinghy No 7 as the eventual winners. It's possible Pat Edyean and Veronica Moore won the race on the day the film crew visited, rather than the whole championship.

Boats were kept in what is now a car park adjacent to the now defunct Mayflower Sailing Club on the Barbican and launched down the adjacent slipway.

There are also some photographs by Eileen Ramsay, 71366 & 71364 are of this event, hover your cursor to see an enlarged view & details.

With 91 entries, record numbers for recent years, the Poole Yacht Club Mirror Nationals 2005 was set to be an extraordinary event and with the previous two times National Champion Dan Ellis not attending a new Champion would be named. The standard of entry was none the less exceptionally high, with champions from other classes competing and the 1978 National Champion returning in the Bronze Fleet.
