Have you ever wondered about following Charles idea of having a flying fifteen in each of two countries and just “popping over” for a regatta??
Well, John Hassen of Perth, Western Australia has done just that. In addition to his sparkly new Ovington at home, he now has a boat here to race with while on family visits to UK. You may have seen him showing in the results table at the Nationals, Ullswater (where he sailed with Chris Turner!) and Cowes Classic week.
You can read a little about his progress at Cowes Classic week by clicking here…. that’s John in the photo on the left and see the section titled “Long Distance Racer” in the report.
