Newsletters 2, 3 and 4


Newsletters from 1955 to 1958 can now be viewed on the Gallery and Archive Page, please check the page regularly for further additions.

Newsletter No.1

The SCOD Association archivist, Peter Shaw, has made available his collection of past newsletters to be digitised and made available on this site. Newsletter no.1, dating from 1956, appears here and the others will follow in the next few days. Apologies to those who may find the download rather large, hopefully this will be addressed in the subsequent ones. The collection covers the first five newsletters in the fifties (nos 1-5), one from 1961 (unnumbered) and then the majority covering 20 years from 1978 to 1998, curiously starting from issue 1 again (it is difficult to believe there were none in the intervening years - does anyone have copies of these?). They are a fascinating insight into the history of the class which will be of huge interest to present owners.

Events 2012

Please find below a schedule of events which may be of interest to Scod owners in 2012 . The date for the rally in Lymington is provisional, hopefully full details will be given shortly. Entry for the RIR is open already, the technical details require to enter your Scod are found here. In recent years the Panerai British Classic Week organised by the BCYC has been preferred to Cowes Week but it is possible to enter both and fit in the majority of Les Tonnerres de Bres!. The RSYC Regatta in Yarmouth comes highly recommended by those who have participated in the last couple of years (the event is spotnsored by Tattinger)
