To kick start their 70th Anniversary year on an even keel, the Flying Fifteen Association invites all keelboat sailors, to join them at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, 4 & 5 March.
The class will have the Royal Flying Fifteen, Coweslip, on their stand C2 at the Dinghy Show.
The Flying 15 was designed and built by Uffa Fox. Coweslip was launched at Uffa’s yard 6 Jun 1949 and presented to His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh who sailed her for many years.
Coweslip will be taking pride of place alongside GBR4047, a new Ovington built boat owned by Ian Pinnell from Pinnell & Bax. Ian is a new comer to the fleet and GBR4047 will be show casing the new class sailplan.
