Allegretto now salvaged

This rare lifting-keel Sadler 32 was seen on Greenborough Marsh, near Stangate Creek. Thanks to helpful members of the boating community, the owner was traced and informed. It appears that Allegretto became detached from her mooring in Gillingham Reach during a storm and drifted 4.5 miles eastwards. After heroic attempts by members of Segas Sailing Club the salvage operation was eventually left to the professionals and the boat is now ashore awaiting a survey.

    Allegretto is one of ours!! The owner is informed but is currently engaged delivering a narrow boat on the grand union canal.
    We have our club launch going to Stangate on tomorrow’s high water. If she floats and is near a channel out of the marsh it may be possible to recover her.
    We may have to wait for a spring tide later in the week.
    Regards Ian
