For those looking to buy a Redwing, you will notice that the boats rarely, if ever arrive for sale in the usual places. However, if you are looking to get into the fleet, boats can always be ‘found’ and sold to prospective sailors, several of us hoard them to use, share or restore over time but would rather they were in use immediately.
Here we will put together a list of boats or parts that are actively for sale. If what you are looking for is not available, do get in touch with the association – we can be very resourceful. If you have something ‘Redwing’ for sale or wanted, contact us and we will endeavour to get it listed.
Wanted – Items to help complete some classic Redwing restorations.
Peter has been on a real mission to restore several Redwings in classic mode for use locally in North Devon. It is a great project and hugely worthy of our support to help bring Redwinging joy to sailors in North Devon while helping to re-building our fleet and getting the boats back on the water.
He has sourced a wooden mast for 197’s restoration which is almost complete, but needs at least one more if not two for the others he is restoring next. He is also in need of two 15″ Saylon black nylon jib sheet lead track’s or Tufnol equivalents.
If you can help, please Peter by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

R114 Stardust – 1949 Norman Pearn hull with classic rig.
Built for 2 daughters to learn how to sail back in the fifties I believe. They lost interest and she was put into storage at the Percuil boat yard. Bought by my father in the early eighties he restored her including putting a new centreboard case in. She still has the original metal plate and no trapeze. She was used every summer for about 20 years (3 weeks each year) and was the boat I learnt to sail in. She has been kept in storage at the Percuil boat yard all the time under cover. She is in sailing condition but could benefit from a light restoration. 1 Set of sails. Everything needed to go sailing but there is no trailer. When we used here we kept her afloat for the 3 weeks while on holiday before putting her back in storage again. I would love to keep her but I live in Norway and have done for the last twenty years and the cost of storage does not justify keeping her longer. Any viewing could be arranged with the yard by calling 01872 580564.
