National 12 - find out more...

RYA Dinghy Show

24th & 25th Feb 2024

The revamped N3484 renamed to Total Perspective Vortex was exhibited on the National 12 stand. The bright purple paint job (meticulously done by Phil Scott) was certainly an eye catcher and featured on the front page of the Yachts and Yatching Dinghy Show report. The Total Perspective Vortex  was apparently runner up in the concours d'elegance - the fifth time Phil Scott has been in that slot!. We were pipped by a beautifully restored Olympic firefly from 1948. The show was pretty busy both days with some 8900 attendees. This year's poster and rainbow sticker were very popular with the kids (as were the sweets).
