Must Be Sold – Any Reasonable Offer

As a member of Aldeburgh Yacht Club(AYC), I purchased one of the retired AYC fleet of FEVAs (sail No. 206) in 2011, when AYC purchased a new FEVA fleet. The dinghies had been well used of course, but they had been professionally maintained, and suffered only wear and tear damage. AYC had very successfully added a stainless steel transom bar to overcome a weakness in the more open transom Feva of this period.
The Feva has been well maintained since then, and in fact has hardly been used since then, owing to a disabling defect to the owner’s shoulder which resulted in the cessation of helming.
RS FEVA has achieved huge sales worldwide; is great for young children and nimble adults alike. Easy to handle for beginners and a great challenge for the experienced sailor. The dinghy comes with asymmetric spinnaker gear and sails, Dacron Main and Jib, plus an older previous generation Main; and a launching trolley.
The dates for racing activities in 2015 at the Norfolk Punt Club have now been published and, as usual, we need lots of people to sign up to run the racing, man safety boats and run the tea hut.
If you are new to the club, signing up for the rota is a great way to find out more about the club and meet some of the more established members.
