My husband passed away suddenly last year. He was restoring a Foiler 21 Boomerang Racing Yacht one of only 6 or 7 made. I hate to get this broken up he was unable to work on it during lockdown and had been unwell before that, so it needs a lot of TLC, he was desperate to restore it.
it’s free to anyone who is willing to collect. I have the sails and ropes. It’s being kept at local gliding club where he was an active member for many years. If you have an interest please let me know, it has an interesting history.
