Interested in Nobbies?  Why not come along to the Royal Albert Dock over the weekend of 1st & 2nd June 2019.  Some ten traditional wooden boats will be on display, several over 100 years old. Introduce yourself and enjoy the company of these fine boats and crew.

The boats expected are;
Anna Ellidi - a large classic wooden gentlemen's yacht. Built-in 1912.

    That's a cool suggestion. I'll provide a link from here to the website and then I'd recommend going to the BLOG link for all the latest updates. The project is coming on well and I'm sure there will be a big fanfare when launched.
