Sailing Barge MARJORIE
The magnificently turned out Marjorie has strung together a remarkable series of results in recent years. One of the earliest of the surviving yacht barges to come out of trade she competed in the last series of Thames Matches in the 1960s.
In recent years she has notched up a 1st and 2nd in the Staysail
Class before moving up a division into the Champion Bowsprits
where she gained 3rd in 2004, 2nd in 2006 and was Champion of
the London River in 2008.
