    A message from Edward Draper: I own the lovely Broads One Design yacht "Garganey", sail no 24. Built of varnish mahogany she is in excellent condition, unlike her owner who is no longer up to sailing her! Garganey is sitting in dry storage on an excellent galvanised road trailer at my home in Suffolk. I want to find a new home for her with someone who will appreciate her quality and enjoy sailing her.
