Celebrating the history of Crossfields
All are welcome to a conference celebrating the Crossfields of Arnside – leading builders of classic yachts and Morecambe Bay Prawners (also known as Nobbies) from the 1840s to 1940s.
The conference, which will be held at the Arnside Educational Institute, is being organised by Arnside Sailing Club. It will explore the history of Crossfields and there will be talks from visiting owners and skippers of Crossfields boats. Arnside Sailing Club itself is the proud owner of ‘Severn’, a 1912 Royal Mersey Rivers Class Yacht which they purchased in 2018 with the help of a Heritage Lottery Grant.
Price: £18 including buffet lunch (any surplus goes towards the maintenance of ‘Severn’). To book a place contact firstname.lastname@example.org
