Known Owners
On the 12 April 1960 Fairey Marine supplied her (hull number 2578) in kit form to Itchenor Shipyard who fitted her out for Mr G Robertson from Midhurst, West Sussex, perhaps Itchenor SC, named "Mark Time"

We bought her from John Glover-Wyllie, Bosham SC, in 1983 and converted her from MkI to MkIII.

1983 - Josh Richardson, Itchenor SC, later Ardleigh SC

History
Unknown racing history before we bought her.

My brother and I sailed her in the 80's winning the NFA Under 16 Junior Champs in 198686 and the NFA Under 18's in 1987 & 1988.

"Flying Tern" has been in storage since then until I re-launched her in 2011 to sail with my son.
