Supporting the Roseland Youth Sailing Trust

The FWBA has received this lovely (and clever!) thank you card and letter from the Roseland Youth Sailing Trust. It is gratifying to know that the support that the Working Boats are able to give to this really important and successful local group is appreciated and put to such good use.  

Championships auction for Stanley’s Friends

At this year’s Working Boat Championships an auction was held to raise money for Stanley’s Friends. The amount raised from the auction and a collection was £1382.20. The Barnes family sent this thank you card to the Association explaining how the money will make a difference in his Stanley’s life at school.

Grace & Gebhard, 2nd June 2018

Saturday’s racing for the Grace and Gebhard trophy saw Mabel emerge victorious, closely followed by Cousin Jinny with Florence finishing in third place. Mike and his team at The Working Boat Bar hosted the day’s prize-giving with their spectacular views across the harbour.
