The Fielding Fleet

The Fielding Fleet

Four new junior club dinghies were officially launched at the Club last Sunday 25th May. The “Fielding Fleet” comprises 2 beautiful Toppers and 2 Topaz Unos. Generously donated by Dr Raymond Fielding, the boats will be used to encourage juniors into sailing and to keep them there when they reach those critical teenage years. “Christine” and “Spellbound”, the colourful Topaz Unos are named after Dr Fielding’s late wife and also the numerous boats they enjoyed over the years. “Binker” and “Pepe”, the two Toppers have been named after two beloved family pets. Many thanks to Dr Fielding for this extremely generous gift. Thanks also to Nick Walsh and Tom Maplebeck who went to great lengths to deliver the boats from the UK. The boats will be well looked after and hopefully many more young people will learn to love the sport of sailing because of them.
