Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums General Wayfarer 50th Anniversary – your ideas please! Re: Re: Wayfarer 50th Anniversary – your ideas please!


I helped organise the Enterprise 50 Year anniversary celebrations in 2006 and we had a great year. We kicked the year off at the Dinghy Show in Ally Pally with two boats on the stand – a classic wooden boat and a state of the art FRP Speed Enterprise.

It would send out a very positive message if we could have a classic wooden Wayfarer at the 2008 Dinghy Show (is W1 still around?) alongside a Hartley FRP Wayfarer. It would demonstrate a class that celebrates its history, but is also looking forward to the future.

As 2008 will see the 50th anniversary of our boat, we wish to celebrate it in style!
Already we have plans for a Calendar, a new brochure and by no means least, the NEW boat courtesy of Hartleys!
