Jane Percival

Vintage Boats

 

 

Jane is the Commodore of the Thames Vintage Boat Club  which was founded at Old Windsor in March 1983.  The Club provides a forum for all types of traditionally built craft to encourage restoration, maintenance and use and in particular to produce and maintain a historical record of all traditional craft on the Thames.  The Club has 580 members who own 250 boats.  

Jane's presentation will include Restoring National Historic Ships and the discovery of a missing Dunkirk Little Ship. She will also tell us about Operation Dynamo and the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships, the Veterans and the Restoration Trust.

Donations from the talk will be given to the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships for the Dunkirk Veterans Cruise.
