How to win a prize at the Flying Fifteen Nationals

posted in: Flying Fifteens Blog | 0

John Christensen and Jonathan Baggot have sent a of their Hayling Bay adventure last weekend – with a description of the thought process that led them to deciding to go to the Nationals, what they did to prepare, what they learned that they still needed to do(!) and what a great time they had. Even better, they won a well-deserved prize for their efforts…

At the end, they ask three excellent questions…

­ Why don’t more Classic or Silver boats go to the Nationals?

­ Where was anyone else from Datchet?

­ Where are next year’s Nationals?

I can answer where they are next year – Falmouth – and why the ‘normal Datchet travellers’ weren’t there, but I hope this report inspires a few more people to travel, including the several Classics/ Silvers we now have – why not give it a thought for next year? Btw, the VR Sport video reports for all 4 days are online now (http://www.vrsport.tv/) and the 2 J’s make another appearance.
