State Championship 2017 – Geraldton

The State Championships for 2017 is only a few weeks away now so time to get your entry in – the earlier the entries are in, the easier for the organising yacht club so please do that as soon as possible and don’t forget skipper and crew both need to be financial members of FFIWA.  There is still accommodation left but don’t leave that to the last minute.

See you all in Gero!

Good opening day for Australia at the Worlds

A fleet of 57 boats lined up for day 1 of the 21st Flying Fifteen World Championship being held in Napier, New Zealand.  It was a grey day with light, oscillating breeze that made for fair sailing.  A great day for the Australians with FFIWA President and Secretary David Yu and Chris Nelson securing a third and first to lead the regatta at the close of day one.

Matthew Owen and Andrew Reed were also steady to finish the day in second place with a second and a fourth and Janet and Nick Jerwood close behind in fourth with a fifth and second.
