    On the Newbridge Boat owner’s Facebook page is a discussion about a

    Newbridge Virgo Voyager aground at Margate in UK which is to be scrapped.  

    There are very few details given but people are discussing whether

    they should approach the harbourmaster at Margate, who it is said

    operates from Ramsgate, to access various bits of the boat.  There seems

    to be an intact mast - which could be a big win for someone wishing

    to do a conversion to JR I would guess.  I post here a picture from the

    Facebook group.  I am also putting the link below to the Facebook

    discussion here, but you may have to join the relevant Facebook group.  

    Thats all I know, I’ve no connection to the boat but it would be a waste

    if the mast was lost without having first been posted here.  A ready made

    mast/rig might be a solution for someone   https://www.facebook.com/groups/917230681801778/permalink/1891596137698556/

    Hi

    this bout is now in a farm (the old Stables) just outside Dover at Lydden. The boat is Sea Tardis formerly from Sandwich. Cant see mast. Phot attached. Has severe damage to hull. Rob
