Hard Chine Flying Fifteen…..!!

In my ignorance, I was totally amazed to see the photos which follow – of a hard chine Flying Fifteen from New Zealand.  They were sent in by Jordan Aspin, who quite reasonably asks, “Have we any of these left in UK?”.

Anyone know the answer??

  1. Re the hard chined fifteen it appears to be the one that was on the hard during the worlds in1994 at TIMARU N/Z

  2. I believe there may have been some of the chine versions in Majorca. I have a line drawing of the chine version but these are the first pictures of one I have seen. It looks as though it would plane well.

  3. I can’t remember, but doesn’t Uffa mention this version in the chapter on Fifteens in his book ‘Sailing Boats’? I don’t have immediate access to my copy, but perhaps someone could check?
