Solent Galley Sallyport arrives at Langstone

Langstone Cutters have a new toy to play with. Sallyport is a Solent Galley, sister to Bembridge. She has been languishing in a boathouse near Oxford for the last couple of years, so we are hoping to bring her back into use.
In the water for the first time for yonks, she has a few chronic leaks but these will probably go as she takes up.
It had better be quick, because she is going round Hayling Island in the Cutters' Round Hayling Race tomorrow.

I've got a bucket you can borrow.

Lovely boat, now you can have races.

Enjoy, Graham
