6 Club Picos

Over the winter season Chris Boshier and I have been refitting the club picos. They have new ropes, tillers and sails.
We are just waiting on a couple of parts and new trolley wheels. They should be good to go by the Easter weekend.
If you are planning to use one and I have not posted here that they are ready, please email me and I will confirm which one to use.
Thank you Chris for all your help.
