For Sale & Wanted

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 a 1970’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
