Some Feedback from events in 2016:
a thank you note received from the President of the Flying 15 Association after the National Championships in July 2016
I just wanted to send you an email on behalf of FFAI to once again say a huge thank you for the efforts made by Cushendall SBC in hosting the Flying Fifteen championship over the weekend. I have been sailing Fifteens for over twenty years and you and your club colleagues really made such an effort and were so hospitable I would safely say that was one of the best events I’ve ever been at.
The level of voluntary effort was amazing and that combined with the breathtaking scenery and excellent race management just made the whole thing special. I hope Brian wasn’t too demanding.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to everyone involved.
With best regards

23 RS400 dinghies made it to Cushendall Sailing Club in County Antrim for the RS Northern Chmpionships with many travelling the full length from Cork. As always when we go to visit one of our less well known destinations, the stops were all pulled out, and Cushendall’s fab team left us feeling very heavily loved and pampered, and certainly well fed. Heartfelt thanks to Marc and his merry band of volunteers, you did yourselves proud.
