Due to the closure of the Basildon Motor Boat Museum, we have been asked if we would like to be the custodians of the ‘Charlie Sheppard Archive’. The archive contains the paper ephemera collected by Charlie during his years of involvement with the CMBRC, the Embassy Grands Prix and the 1975 races in Cardiff Docks. The archive will be available to anyone who wishes to access its contents. In due course we will add a list of the archive’s contents to the website. If you would like any further info on the Charlie Sheppard Archive please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also pleased to have been asked to look after the Seebold boat that used to be housed at the Basildon Museum. With the help and support of Jason Mantripp at the LOBMBC the boat will be restored to its former glory.
