Seawych Register


Firstly a plea to all members to let me know when you sell or buy a Sea Wych as I am compiling a register.

I am doing this by logging the Sail Number which identifies the boat, never mind the owner. I need the Name and Sail Number, name of owner and where kept if possible.

I also have a list of boats by name but no sail number. If you have ever owned a boat and know its number or name but don't know of its whereabouts, perhaps you could let me have this info and I can check my list.

Please keep your eyes peeled for any Sea Wyches languishing in boat yards, on moorings or back yards and hopefully we can have a complete register of all Sea Wyches ever built. Also if any boats have been destroyed.
