TIDEWAY OWNERS ASSOCIATION

 

RYA AFFILIATED CLASS

Welcome to the

 Tideway Owners Association

The association was formed in 1963 and exists today to further the use and enjoyment of this Classic 12’  clinker built dinghy.

Built of mahogany on oak by L H Walker of Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, this gunter-rigged traditional “Swallows & Amazons” style dinghy provokes interest and admiring looks wherever it is seen.  The boat was originally conceived as a “Family Cruising” dinghy, but is now more usually sailed  with a crew of 2 or single handed. The boat continues to be built today both in traditional wood and wood trimmed GRP.
