Colne Match results;

MERMAID worked from Sutton Bridge (Kings Lynn) most of her life as a shrimper.  She finished her working life on the seal cull in the Wash, after being set on fire by animal activists.  She was then sold and brought to the Thames estuary and rebuilt.  Since then she has been used for racing in the local regattas.
