Entries for 2016


No surprise that “Molly”, the New Bedford whaleboat of The Henley Whalers has entered (somebody has to test the web site !).


We also have those other stalwarts of the English Raid, “Shuitje” together with a welcome return of “Huitbertje” who attended the very first  English Raid.


The beautiful, Herreshoff – designed 12.5, “Nathia” is also making the journey from The Netherlands and Claus Riepe will be bringing “Homer” from Ireland (even though he lives in Hamburg).  “Homer is a highly adapted (by Rossiter Yachts but specified by Claus) Bay Raider Expedition and is designed to fully recover form a 180 degree capsize.

For reasons of safety, organisational logistics and bed space we may need to limit the number of boats that can be entered for the 2016 Raid.  The Clyde is expected to be a very popular choice with the Raiding community.
