Flying Fifteens have been at Hayling since the very early days. HISC archivist Belinda Cook recalls that the first FF at HISC may well have been owned by John ‘Jack’ Barker in the late 1940s. A fleet has therefore survived in one shape or another through over six decades at the club.
The HISC calendar has plenty of opportunity for Flying Fifteen sailors to race every weekend. The season starts on 19th March. Dedicated racing in the renowned Pennant series starts in April, on a monthly basis excluding August, the final being in October. A Sprint series may also be added to the calendar.
