We've all heard by now the great success stories of starting FF Fleets as Classic, or Classic/Silver Fleets.....
As you may have read on the blog recently, the local members are going to try the same trick at Falmouth. The Fleet Rules are going to be:-
- Sail numbers below 3000
- second hand sails only
- for local handicap racing a special Portsmouth Yardstick will apply
I can't wait to see how they get on!! Dave came up to Datchet mid-October to pick up the first "new" Falmouth boat. He chose "Midnight Cocktail", a very famous boat in its time. I think it's 2948 - and is yet another early carbon boat if I recall correctly. It was built by Trenoweth, so it's off to its spiritual home....
