The FFAI website has been around for a few years now, and is long overdue a revamp. The first part of this process is to ask Flying Fifteen sailors, those interested in Flying Fifteens, and anyone else with an opinion, what you think we should be doing with the site.
The primary purpose of the site is to provide updates and notices and to record the doings of FF sailors on and off the water, always with the wider sailing public in mind.
Needless to say, contributions in the form of actual content, such as articles, pictures, and videos also are always welcome!
