"Seal flags about, all Orange and Black
Hoorah 2021 rallies may be back?
Lockdown being lifted, oh how we are gifted,
17th May outdoors with 30, let’s not get too flirty
Bank holidays weekend are open, we "Seals" are a hoping.”

Peter Lowry

When can we return to sailing?

The RYA have defined a 'Roadmap' of dates for the government stating what restrictions are in place and the earliest dates they can be eased

The PSSA is the class association for Parker and Seal lift keel yachts and other types of shallow draft yachts.

As an active, friendly club with almost 350 members, it organises rallies, social events and an annual race around the Isle of Wight.

Seals and Parkers are British-built yachts, ranging in length from 21' to 33', mostly with lifting keels. They started with the Seal 22 in 1970, built by John Baker, and followed by the Seal 28 and Super Seal 26. In 1981, Bill Parker took over the range and added the Parker 21, Parker 27 and Parker 31. These then evolved into a high-quality range of cruiser-racers built by Parker Lift-Keel Yachts - the trailable Parker 235, the Parker 285 and the Parker 335. In 2009, Parker Lift-Keel yachts ceased trading.
