Telltale: new crew, new boats, new new jibs. And no old jokes

It's been a while now since Telltale has updated you all on our little Flying Fifteen family and, despite Christie's regular personal column inches in Afloat, it's time for a slightly different report.

Always newsworthy Major Dumpleforth, back from helping team New Zealand put the finishing touches to their tuning for the Americas Cup, was seen training himself on a Monday evening. His enthusiasm has been dialled up again, training on a Monday no less where with gay abandon he dumped his trailer in the no parking zone at the top of the slip and headed for the bay, having secured the services new crew.
