Welcome to the Unicorn Site

2019 February Latest News

Janet & I have just returned from a Cruise to the Caribbean and Panama Canal where temperatures were 30 C plus, so today in the UK with snow and temperatures of zero to minus 5 C it is taking some adjustment to climatise! I can certainly recommend a transit voyage of the canal which takes between 8 and 10 hours and is a magnificent engineering achievement. I trust everyone has had a great time over the Festive Season and hopefully you are planning your boat tuning for the 2019 sailing season which will soon be commencing in April.

I can now confirm that Stone SC have accepted our request to join Stone Week for the Unicorn Nationals to be held from Monday 5th to Friday 9th August. This year it is the 70th Anniversary since the formation of the Club and many special events are planned to celebrate this milestone. Logging into the Club web site will keep you fully informed regarding these events. Please make a note on your calendar of the National dates to ensure they are reserved to attend this event. With some regular Championship competitors changing or improving their boats for 2019 and some new members with their first Unicorn, the 2019 Season should be competitive. The Traveller trophy series of races detailed in the last News Letter will enable Unicorn sailors across the UK to participate in Class racing and meet fellow Unicorners in preparation for the Nationals.

This official web site for the Unicorn Association has been modified over the last couple of months to assist members and other interested people to more easily locate both current and past articles. Under Members reports there are now four main sections Nationals ( reports / results ), Traveller Series (dates, location, reports, results ) Club Reports ( your club results, events, activities etc.) Build and restoration Projects (member reports regarding new builds or refinements). The material in each section is dependent on the information provided by members to myself or other Committee members.  Similarly the web site offers free advertising for unicorn boats and parts which could assist you in upgrading your boat. It is important that members support the Association if the Class is going to expand in the future. 2019 membership fees of £15 are now due and should be received by the Treasurer by the end of April. Have a great 2019 and look forward to meeting you. Peter Toft
