Black Fun has landed

I am very pleased to be able to report that Black Fun has arrived in the UK having been shipped from New Zealand in a container. This represents a huge commitment on behalf of the owners Brett Linton and Jamie McDowell into the Quarter Ton Class. They first observed what we were doing with our Quarter Tonners from down under, came over to the UK and chartered Diamond for Cowes Week in 2009, came again and were lent Enigma in 2010 and now this year having purchased their own Quarter Tonner, Black Fun, have refitted it in NZ, and shipped it over here to join in the summer sailing programme, including trailing it to Ireland for the Sovereigns Cup. One cannot underestimate the effort these guys have put into their programme. Bear in mind a QT doesn't fit into a container without having to be tilted onto its side.
Welcome my friends........ I think it deserves a bottle of Mount Gay (minus lid) at the first opportunity......
