What do you wish to share about your club, season, F15 experiences?
As usual, I have been inundated (not) with content for next year's FF World. Please respond to this news and make it a deluge.
First words from new UKFFA President Bill Chard
My first newsletter as President, but I think most of you will know me already, and if we haven’t met at an event yet, hopefully that will change next season. I’ll start by thanking Ian Cadwallader for running the ship for the last couple of years and handing over to me with the UK fleet in such good shape.
Held 7th-8th October
This was the last event in the Flying Fifteen Southern Travellers series held at Broxbourne Sailing club who sail on the gravel pit in the Lee Valley.
21-24th September 2023
The class National Championships took place over 4 days in Portland. 50 boats signed in for the event and the early arrivals were greeted by Storm Nigel with lashing rain and high winds. After this there was excellent racing conditions out in Weymouth Bay until the next storm arrived on Saturday resulting in a wild and windy race in the harbour.
7th-8th October 2023
With South Cerny cancelling their event due to no wind (TBC if they hold an open later in the year) and Chew Inland Championships it is all change at the top of the leader board. 45 boats have now sailed at a Southern Travellers event this year with 17 attending two events or more.
Ian Cadwallader gives us the full SP on this year's favorites
Plenty of usual suspects, some new pairings, plus some big names from outside of the class
