  1. Posted by webmaster on behalf of Edward Chetwynd-Stapylton. Please reply to ecstapylton@btinternet.com. I would very much like to hear from anyone considering selling their Sonata this winter. Fin or lifting keel, no preference but do need one fitted out down below (bunk cushions, cooking facilities, heads etc!). Having owned a Sigma 33 for the last 10 years I’m looking for something a bit smaller and easier to maintain. I look forward to hearing from you.
  2. I'm doing a bit of de-cluttering in the Sonata forums. I've moved the older posts from this forum to the website archive. You can browse the old stuff over there or use the site search to find key words and phrases. The relocated posts should also be more accessible to Google, although it will take it a while to catch-up.
  3. I don't know if you've already seen these pages on the website but just in case you haven't: http://sonata.org.uk/mainsheet-travellers/ http://sonata.org.uk/things-that-work/ http://sonata.org.uk/pushpit-brace/ jack
  4. Excellent summary and call to arms Chris. You mention people who've bought a Sonata cheaply and refurbished it as a competitive boat. Maybe one of them might have a story interesting enough to be published in one of the yachting mags?
  5. Thanks for the kind words. Yep, I thought it needed an upgrade so I just did it. As well as the new look, it's mobile friendly and has some new features. It's now a Wordpress site so should be easier to keep up-to-date without losing the mass of older-but-still-valuable stuff. I think the Facebook page and the website complement each other. My take on it is the website provides current news items, a shop-front for anyone interested in the class, an authoritative source of class information and an archive of hints, tips, stories, history and all the rest of it. Always happy to discuss how the web site might develop in the future. Cheers jack
  6. We require a lift keel Sonata in reasonable condition to be used for Club Racing and day sailing – preferably in East Anglia (as we don’t have a tow hook!) We are Ann and Mike Jackson 7 Westmorland Road Felixstowe Suffolk IP11 9TB Telephone 01394 282073 (posted by Administrator) please contact Ann and Mike directly.
  7. Following discussion at the 2012 AGM, we've made further changes to the bulletin board. Most forums can be read by anyone (guests). To post in the forums you will need to create an account on the bulletin board. Note that there may be a delay of a day or two before your account request is confirmed - we try to keep spammers out. If you have any problems reading or posting to the board then send a message via the board or email the webmaster. jack hardie
  8. The Annual General Meeting of the National Sonata Association was held last week at the National Championships - the minutes will be published on the web site as soon as they are available. One issue in particular affects the users of this board. Members at the meeting felt very strongly that everyone who posts messages to the bulletin board should write under their own name rather than a nickname or 'handle'. I will therefore be going through the member database over the next few weeks and changing your display name to your real name (where I know it). If I don't know your name, I'll contact you by email. Oh yes, and I'd better change 'Administrator' to 'Jack Hardie'
  9. This forum is the place for general discussion about the National Sonata: requests for help, good ideas to share etc. Please look at the other forums for race reports and items for sale. Jack Hardie
