The Cockleshell Photo Collection

Thanks to David Gallimore and a chance meeting in Cowes High Street, a photo taken in 1956 is now in the photo album. It shows Cockleshell heading out for a Wednesday evening race at St. Peter Port with John Sherwill and a young guest crew on board. David was so impressed that he kept the photo (taken by his father) and the piece of note paper on which the handicaps were calculated - this too is now in the album. Many thanks David!

If you have any photos of Cockleshell and would like to contribute them for inclusion in the album they would be very gratefully received.
