New clinker dinghy launched

The latest Fowey River clinker sailing dinghy was launched a couple of weeks ago, number 61 in the fleet, named Puffling, the boat was built for world champion sailors Kim and Sarah Furniss, who intend to race competitively in the fleet at Fowey.                                                                                                                                61web2 61web1Kim and Sarah were world champions in the Dart 18, and also raced Tornado cats in Olympic qualifyers, but have now decided on something a little more sedate, but possibly just as challenging – racing around Fowey harbour-with its fickle winds and frustrating tides- and hopefully encouraging other Fowey River sailors to get on the water.
