  • Sadly on the night of the 27th David Speight passed away. He will be remembered by us all for his magnificent achievement in building from scratch, the barge "British King II" in his backyard.

  • Probably the best photos that I took during the Thames Match cannot be retrieved from my camera. I am desperately seeking photos of Will particularly when she was bearing away from Southend near the ship that was anchored. Her she was being tossed around. Her bows rising and falling - lovely sight. Please........ anyone???
