Hi everyone,

I am seeking information for my dad who sadly at age 70+ needs to part with his beloved Hornet. As a family we have owned her for over 30 years. She has K1442 on her mainsail. When we bought her she was named Zenobia and was bought of family in the Stoke on Trent Staffordshire area, the man we bought it off thought he was only the 2nd owner?

Dad says: The hull is a ‘Bell Wood Working wooden hull' which other than knowing its wooden does not mean much to me!

I have looked at the database but there wasn't anything on here. I would be most grateful for any help.

Also if we sell it shall I let you know on here, was going to put it onto Ebay but see you have a For Sale section, and we would love her to go to a good home. Grateful for any advice,

Jenny AKA Juniper7.

Hi Juniper 7,

The number rings a bell (sorry about that). If I am right then I will be able to give you some information about the boat which I saw when brand new.

Will go into the loft this weekend to try and dig out my "Old Hornet Stuff" and post next week.

SmilePotted History - 1442 was originally Sinbin , a 1968 Rigden boat owned by Bernard Eastwell at Sussex YC in Shoreham by Sea. Bernard is still about , living in Hove I think. About 1971 it went to Medway , renamed Snoopy owned by John Stevens. If it then went North (above Potters Bar) and was renamed that would be it's 3rd owner. Does it still have a plank?

Beat me to it Jim.  Saved me a trip up into the loft as well as a trip down memory lane.

But the question remains does it still have a plank or has the boat gone over to the dark side and now carries a trapeze.

SmileIf 1442 is the sail number is this the same as the number on the boat? it should be carved in the transom or back of the cockpit.
