SURFURY VISIT


Please be advised that we can now proceed with arrangements for a visit to SURFURY at the NMM storage facilities Wroughton…BUT I am afraid it has to be a weekday……they are closed weekends!

So it has been suggested for convenience a FRIDAY may be the best day and as we have 2 BANK HOLIDAYS in May either the 1st or the 22nd.

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST WITH MYSELF ASAP…AND YOUR PREFERRED DATE.

SWEDISH BEAUTIES

Think back to the mid sixties and the Swedish invasion…the Bog Bats of Tag Boghammer…Speedy Gonzales and Låt mig få dansa (Lets Dance) it appears that both boats are still with us and may soon undergo restoration…both were powered by single Daytona’s and it will be remembered Speedy was at one point faster than Surfury…Boghammer now build extremely fast craft for the worlds navy’s and once built Magnums under licence but it is good to know these 2 still exist and maybe will be seen at the Classic Raly one day in the future.

Note for your Diary…

A Cowes Torquay past and present film night is to be held in PETWORTH West Sussex on the evening of the Friday 27th March….Cost in region of £6 per head including welcome drink….full details will be advertised soon…places may be limited so please register your interest via email to club secretary.
