Well now we have got over the shock it’s time to think about moving forward again. Very sadly the IBTC (International Boatbuilding Training College) have decided they now cannot restore Dolly as planned, which has basically meant we have lost a year. Nothing we can do about it other than extract the positives and one is that in her time there, a few more have got to know the racing legend that is Dolly Varden. Just to cheer us up a bit a few more pictures have turned up in the newspaper archives. This is one of them from 1932 with Dolly in full development mode, just look at those radical sails!
