Over some time, we’ve had an Australian in our midst – John Hassen… I think I first met John at the Hayling Worlds in 2011. John has family over here, and I have family ‘over there’ – so it has made sense to chat about life a lot.
John has long nurtured his dream of campaigning a Flying Fifteen “over here” as well as “over there”. His is a proper Two Boat Programme !! If you’re going to the France Worlds, you’ll likely see him there too!
I’ve got to know John pretty well, as many of us have. You might like to read his travelogue of FF sailing in Europe that he has published on the FF Australia website.
