    Win £3000 - Answer is - DINGHY ( page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 26/09 ( £100 ) and 03/10 ( £3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 26/09 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone
