Hi
I am looking for the whereabouts of the Hornet Dinghy "Mojo".
I used to crew on her back in the 70's and still have the scars on my bum to prove it!
Her sail number is 945 and she was a prolific winner of several Hornet Championships (although not when I sailed on her)
She is a full wooden boat originally built by Rigdens of Whitstable
Her last whereabouts was at the Downs Sailing Club in Deal, Kent

If you know anything that might help locate this boat, please post a message here

If you have an old Hornet languishing in your dinghy park, check the thwart or transom which should have the number carved in it.

thanks

Mark

You may wish to ask the question on the CVRDA forum.
They are a mine of information, and more than likely
know a man who does..... possibly.

If you cant post on Hornet forum without registering I am more than happy to post for you. Someone was talking about Mojo on one of the forums a while back. David Henshall may know.
