Michael Brigg reports "My father aquired F1590 in about1968, swapped for an Uffa International 14 (Perigrine K273?) at Rickmansworth Sailing Club. We moved to Chichester, Itchenor SC, in 1970 where Vol au Vent was sailed with moderate success in the local club junior racing and later occasionally at a championship.

She became progressively leaky and after a few seasons in the garden when we went away to college, developed serious rot along the keel.

She contributed explosively to a Guy Fawlkes party of which I have only faint memories in 1979 or thereabouts. A few of her parts remain as spares. R.I.P."
