FF15.

We had not got the bottle to use the spinnaker in 25+kts, but we were on the limit down the reaches as it was (with 30 stone in the boat, this takes some doing).  But then the forestay was very slack downwind anyway, so perhaps not using the spinnaker and keeping the mast was a good idea

somewhere our club has quite a few photos of some capsized FF's in 25+knts. Interestingly they don't look any different to a normal capsized boat

49er 531 & 5000 5025 and a mirror(now gone to mirror heaven)!

Now there's a topic for discussion. What d'yer reckon the Queen's eBay ID is?

1ER2 of course

I think that both Phil the Greek and Andrew the playboy have both sailed and competed in FF15's

Could you append your signature line to read "the cat sailor adds more Stella"

If we ever bump into each other you'll probably notice that I'm 37. And a Guinness drinker.

Not that I have a sign round my neck. Just a bell!
