Avon Sailing Club at Twyning, 1957
From 1953 to 1960 Avon Sailing Club was based in what had been an orchard, part of the Fleet Inn. The photo shows 12ft National, Firefly and 14ft Merlin Rocket dinghies, coming back to the dinghy park after racing. The photographer had a 12ft National dinghy, and during vacation used to swim across the river to reach the club, as the pub landlord didn't like being disturbed to run the ferry. See SO9036 : Fleet Inn Twyning, garden, and Avon Sailing Club, 1957 for another 1957 view, and SO9036 : The Fleet Inn, Twyning, across the Avon for a 2015 view of the inn.
