September 18/19. 17 Flying Fifteens raced on the River Alde in the Aldeburgh Yacht Club F15 open meeting, part of the Southern Traveller series. Post racing those involved in the organisation were enjoying a well-deserved pat on the back, when I was reminded that back in 2000 the club regatta attracted 20 Flying Fifteens and the Southern championships held at Aldeburgh attracted 41 in 2001. Lean years followed until a few years ago when the resurgence began. We have a little way to go, however interest continues and boat numbers are thankfully increasing.
