I was one of many who made a contribution to the original purchase of Nancy Blackett by the Trust twenty years ago. It is well known that "boats are holes in the water into which money is poured". Wooden boats are just deeper holes. It seems that Nancy's funds need replenishing and the Nancy Blackett Trust has announced an appeal to build a fund to make necessary repairs and provide a cushion for future expenditures.

I believe that Nancy Blackett as a sailing link to Arthur Ransome and to some of his most loved books is worth preserving and I will be making my new contribution twenty years on from my first.
