F15 Nationals 1956 - Sailing Instructions

16th to 20th July 1956, Strangford Lough

Sailing Instructions, etc for the 1956 Nationals at Strangford Lough

For those interested in Class History we have received a copy of the Programme for the 1956 UK Nationals held at Strangford Lough Yacht Club. (Attached to this news item).

Amazingly they had 40 entries including the late H.R.H. Prince Philip sailing with Uffa.

Things were somewhat different in those days with a 5 hour time limit per race and a choice of 14 courses - some with marks to Starboard (that must have been interesting!)

Thanks to Patricia Naylor for sharing this item of memorabilia, several members of her family participated in the event including her father Leo Hughes who it is believed crewed his nephew Raymond Gilmore.
