President's message May

Flying Fifteen Association of Ireland.

As the Covid-19 virus continues to affect all of us I do hope that you are all staying safe.

Events and advice regarding the virus have continued and we have all to follow the most up to date local Government Guidelines. 

We are still of the view that there is no need for us to cancel any other events this far in advance as realistically we would be able to mobalise to go to an event at relatively short notice. The remaining events in the calendar are listed below.

Crews rule in a riveting return to Ballyholme

Report from the East Coast Championship, won by Rory and Andrew Martin
By Saturday evening, Ballyholme boat-park looked like a rivet exchange. Charlie was offering barely intelligible advice, Roger was watching his drill bits shatter and Keith's lazy tongs were going like the bellows of a button accordion. The Dunmore lads were kicking the tyre on their jockey wheel, the Donegal team were replacing a tiller extension, and Alan was pacing around distributing nuts, bolts and engineering advice.


Five Flying Fifteens now racing at Lough Neagh

Great news from Lough Neagh Sailing Club, in Co. Armagh, where Stuart Harrison reports that five Fifteens, some of them pictured below, are now competing in the Icebreaker Series running to mid-April.

Says Stuart: "We are trying to promote F15 sailing at the club, and some boats will attend the 2016 Irish F15 events at Portaferry, Cushendall and Dublin Bay."
