The first AGM was held in 1974, and during that year 7 newsletters sent out and, as well as a number of rallies and cruises, there was a race around the Isle of Wight - which has now become an annual event.
By 1975 the Seal 22 Mk 3 and Seal Sinbad were in production, the Seal 28 prototpe built. Membership was up to 110, and the association was present at both the London and Southampton boat shows.
The association continued to grow to through the late 1970's, and in 1980 changed its name from the "Seal Association" to the "Seal Sailing Association" as its purpose was being misunderstood!
In 1982, John Baker decided to withdraw from boat production, but Bill Parker (G.W. Parker & Son Ltd) took over building the Super Seal 26. Parker 21's were introduced in 1984, and the Parker 27 in 1987. Also, in 1987, John Baker was given honorary life membership.
1990 saw the introduction of the Parker 275 and, three years later, the Parker 325 became the new 'flagship' in succession to the 31.
The Parker 325 was voted for "Yacht of the Year" in 1995.
