Fisher Owners Association Commodore Chris Morris contacted us last year to request support for prizes for their annual awards for best log and Personal achievement award and we were pleased to accept. Fisher class yachts are renowned for their seaworthiness and make great cruising yachts .
In November last year, the Fisher Owners Association held its AGM and Annual Dinner in Chester - it was most successful with 68 sitting down to dinner (their best ever since founded in 1993), including a couple from France.
Our competition was 'fierce' and the results for the 2013 FOA Barton Marine Prizes, announced at the dinner, were:
1. Winner of the FOA Barton Best Log award 2013 - Jeanette Haskov for the story of the voyage she and her husband Jens made from Norway to France and back via west coast UK and Ireland. Published in FisherLite Summer 2013. View Their Experience (PDF)
2. Winner of the FOA Barton Personal Achievement award 2013 - Ellie Sautelle-Smith for her first channel crossing in a small boat and her husband Bryan for his wonderfully laid-back attitude to sailing. Published in FisherLite Winter 2012. View Their Experience (PDF)
Ellie & Bryan Sautelle-Smith were present at the dinner, and Jeanette & Jens Haskov (they live in Norway) were informed of their success - they were naturally all delighted with their Barton prizes.
We are pleased to present the winning articles for you all to enjoy.
