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.
Cad gets his hands dirty, then looks ahead to the biggest event of the year
Changing wheel bearings, sailing at the Southerns, and plans for August & September
National Champs news plus coaching & debriefing plan
Encouraging penalty-taking by reducing penalty turns to a single 360 turn apart from incidents in a mark zone.
Containers away and calendar sorted...and how to bear away!
It's December, and time for Cad’s final thoughts for the year
Travelling broadens the mind!
One of the many attractions of sailing a Flying 15 is the diversity of sailing clubs where they’re actively sailed. From disused gravel pits like South Cerney in Wiltshire, lakes, lochs & reservoirs and then to the open sea. It truly is a boat for all occasions.
Words of wisdom from Cad as the season turns
When the first wave broke over me last weekend in a cold and gusty Northly at Draycote, I realised that the summer regatta season is over and it’s time to dust off the winter kit . But on reflection, it’s been a good summer for sailing 15s..
