Welcome to the Unicorn Site

2018 January Latest News

Greetings and Happy New Year 2018 to everyone.

At this time of the Year everyone is recovering from their Festive activities which can be Family related or a vacation in sunnier climes or winter sport related. This year Janet & I spent a week in Mauritius followed by a further two weeks Cruising the Indian Ocean Islands off the African Coast. Zanzibar was the highlight with traditional hustle and bustle of the markets and dhows sailing on the trade winds in the setting sun. A little bit like Stone on a summer evening, with Unicorns being the local craft. Now back to UK reality with cold Easterly winds and snow flurries.

On Face book it seems a few other members have been looking at their old photos and reminiscing. For us older members this is a good activity as it exercises the grey matter and also help sort out the old files. Anyway, continuing the theme on this web site for those who do not regularly use Face book.

1983 National Line up of 18 boats at Stone

Of the 18 competitors at least 9 are still swinging around somewhere in the world, some 34 years on, and 6 are still sailing catamarans,but only three are still standing out on the wire of a Unicorn! To assist interested people in identifying who’s who, I have included the results sheet of this event

Food for thought, but time marches on and current Unicorn members should be actively preparing their boats for the 2018 Season. Your Committee are working on a revised Traveller Series with bonus points for attending events. When it is finalised the details will be published. For new and younger sailors (under 60 ) it is important to gain experience in Class racing. The Nationals and Traveller Series is the best way to get the knowledge in an enjoyable way. Also remember that you can advertise your Unicorn or spare parts for free on this web site, likewise look at the For Sale section if you wish to purchase anything. Enough of this reminiscing. Have a good 2018. Peter Toft 1054 with brown sail in the Photo
