Twin Spiro Fly Aways…..!

We have a team at our club experimenting with twin Spiro poles.  At the Show, Bill Chard had a very thoughtful set up which was attracting lots of attention.


This photo shows the guts of it, and the photo below shows you the very neat detailing at the mast gate controls.

At the back of the boom, of course, there’s a lot of elastic to fit in.

 

 

Great Day at The RYA Dinghy Show….!!

It was a great day up at the Dinghy Show today.  First time I can say I’ve ever noticed those trees in blossom!

The show on Saturday seemed really well attended and the Flying Fifteen stand was actually VERY busy – a great sign.

So good to meet old friends.  The FF on the stand was our latest addition to the Fleet – 4069… beautifully fitted out by Bill Chard.  Very very thoughtful piece of work that is.

I’ve a whole load of photos to publish shortly of the things on Bill’s boat that caught my eye.

More later.

Great view of the Shard from up there!
