Lymington Town Sailing Club‘s binoculars were taken from the club on Tuesday 2nd September. Please help find them…
The Binoculars which have always been located in the Solent Room allowed members and their guests to admire the stunning Solent views. They were an added safety feature for Race Officers to monitor the dinghy race area and provided a visual check for competitors to asses wind and tidal conditions out in the Solent.
The binoculars are Carl Zeiss Binoculars used by the German Military in WW2, and the earliest recollection of them being in the Solent Room at Lymington Town Sailing Club dates back to 1957. With a matt green/grey finish, they are large, heavy and a specialist tool was needed to remove them, this was not a task for the faint hearted!
The members of LTSC are saddened by the disappearance of the binoculars and urge any one with information to contact the club directly on 01590 674514 or Lymington Police on 101 quoting crime number 44140317195.
We hope they are found.
