Verisona Law to sponsor Bosham Classic Boat Revival: Ian Proctor Centenary Rally

Verisona Law are proud sponsors of the Bosham Sailing Club Ian Proctor Centenary Rally during the annual Classic Boat Revival, 1-2 September 2018.

The Bosham Classic Boat Revival is now recognised as the premier annual event for classic dinghies so it is a fitting event at which to celebrate one of the undisputed greats of sailing dinghy design. Many of Proctor's designs are expected to attend including the Osprey, Kestrel, National Twelves, National Eighteens, Merlin-Rockets, Minisail, Wanderer and Wayfarer, and Topper..

The Classic Boat Revival is now in its 8th year and the Club are expecting a good number of classic racing dinghies, many of whom attend every year, from all over the UK and abroad, plus a significant number of the most iconic Proctor-designed boats still afloat to gather as a fitting tribute to this remarkable designer.

Over the weekend there will be a series of five races, starting from two committee boats, with entrants split into three fleets.

Subject to interest, there will also be a series of low key harbour races for a fourth fleet dedicated to Proctor designs who do not wish to compete in the classic boat fast, medium and slow fleets.

Prizes will be awarded for racing and there will also be two prestigious Concours d'Elegance awards – one for the classic boat fleet and one for a Proctor-designed boat.

There is a full social programme with a Gala Dinner at the clubhouse to celebrate Ian Proctor's remarkable career on Friday 31 August and on Saturday 1 September there will be a casual club supper with live music for all to enjoy.

Tim Reynolds at Verisona Law offers marine services to personal and corporate clients, and in relation to a wide variety of marine related subject matters ranging from international acquisitions to foreshore rights. When not in the office Tim is a serial rebuilder of classic craft and will be racing his Uffa ace National 18 Toucou in the fast fleet, which for the first time will also include both the ARP national 18 Finola and the Proctor National 18  White Tiger, both of which Tim has previously part-owned and restored. Tim has also just relaunched the 1962 Nordic Folkboat Nina following her 8 year restoration, intending to campaign her in Solent classic yacht racing events.
