Brightlingsea C50 ‘Eider’ launched

Sue and Adrian Bouckley’s new BOD was finally launched last Friday from Brightlingsea Town Hard, preceded by a drinks reception at the Colne Yacht Club. Sue’s daughter Hannah Stodel was there with her GBR Paralympic team to dowse the boat in Champagne and to crew for her Mum along with sister Abbi on ‘Eider’s’ maiden voyage. Special guest was John Mullins, the boatbuilder who made the original BOD glass tooling for Petticrow and who started the work on Eider’s hull 10 years ago.
