We probably have all observed that the top people in sailboat racing seem to hop from Class to Class and get stronger for it. I think our own Steve Goacher is active in Merlins and GP14’s for example.
So I was very intrigued to follow the Dragon Championships at Weymouth recently and was delighted see several key Flying Fifteen names up in the running. We had Hamish McKay – who did jolly well at 4th overall, sailing with an absolute God of a man – Poul Richard Hoj Jenson. (If you’ve never heard of him, look him up!!) We also had a Mike Hart and a brace of Waples, Justin and Tom, all doing well.
