Edwin Dewhirst has been an outstanding local sailor, based and sailing out of Chorley! For over 25 years, he trailer-sailed his 18′.6” Bell Seagull all around the coast of the UK and covered an amazing 20,000 sea miles.

The following Anglesey/Menia Staits images were taken by another north west yachtsman John Beckitt whose boat is based in north Wales.
