Midday Gun – recently sold and now sailing out of Burnham – 2014
Still a racer at heart with fractional rig.
I was the previous owner of Midday Gun for circa 8 years (in syndicate and laterly on my own ) and we thoroughly enjoyed racing her locally and at Cowes and with the right crew on board she was very competitive.
Hard to get 7 or 8 crew consistently and I wasn’t getting enough use out of the boat so had to let her go but happy memories. Considered re-rigging to take the runners out but wasn’t worth the cost relative to the cost of the boat but is always an option to make the boat easier to sail.
I look forward to seeing some great results from Burnham ;
last I heard she was getting a repaint job to stealth black.
I have attached the details of my website which you can link to – http://www.middaygun.weebly.com
I am still sailing and crewing in the Solent on a potential Commodores Cup contender so still in the sport.
