Flying Fifteen Fleet Update 15 October 2019

Two Club Championship heats, two bullets for the Jerwood/Sheridan team in Ineffable where, unfortunately for the mere mortals in our fleet, luck had nothing to do with the result. There was enough west in the breeze so that those that went right were right (up front) but those who went left were left (behind). Rear Commodore Carl and Kristine got closer than anyone to Ineffable with a strong second in the first race with Faffin
Great to see some new old faces re-joining the fleet after a couple of seasons away. Pete Burtenshaw has purchased 3935 from John Hassen and is again sailing the diminutive (not) Travis and Lillo has taken delivery of Spot the Difference and had Ed Repsevicius back at the front end.

Welcome back to you all.
