Gareloch Goddesses Class History for Sale

It was John Henderson who brought the Garelochs back to Rhu in the late 1950s. He wrote a history of the class, Gareloch Goddesses, in 1959. A volume which is now highly prized.

For the 90th anniversary of the class, John’s nephew, Tim Henderson wrote Gareloch Goddesses Back Home, which brings the history up to date. The foreword is by Woodie Scott, the first winner of the 50th Anniversary Trophy, awarded for the annual Gareloch Championship. Bound in green buckram with gold lettering to match the earlier volume.
Gareloch Goddesses Back Home is available at £30 plus £3 postage and packing.

    Willie Thompson who raced Dione at The Royal Forth in the early fifties is still alive and kicking in Edinburgh. I sailed as “bailer boy” with him and my late father. He and I must be the last of the Forth One Design crews.

      Great to hear from you. Dione is being rebuilt, details in the restoration section of the website.

      If you fancy a reacquaintance with the Garelochs, please drop me a line. Racing on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Some Garelochs no longer need constant bailing.
