FLYING TWENTY FIVE - FLYING FOX

The Flying 25, Flying Fox, is now available for sale in Melbourne.  Details can be found here http://www.yoti.com.au/uffa-fox-flying-25-flying-fox/

Having been lucky enough to sail on her myself I can vouch for her being a great modern version of one of Uffa's classic designs.

The Isle of Wight Classic Boat Museum has relocated from Newport to East Cowes.  The new site is split into a Gallery containing exhibitions, library, photographs (check these out) and archives, and a Museum where the boats reside.  Both areas contain loads of interesting Uffa exhibits.  Visit the website for more details Classic Boat Museum.  Even better if you are in Cowes visit the museum.  Here are a few tasters of Uffa design / builds that are on show:

 UFFA ON FILM

A TREAT FOR UFFA ENTHUSIASTS

We recently found a piece of old film of Uffa commentating on, and sailing in, the Round The Island Race with Max Aitken on Lumberjack circa 1955.  It has been converted and an extract can be viewed on the link below.
