I see many thousands of sailing sites and there are few that I actually stop at and spend some time on, and even less that I actually comment on. YOURS IS ONE. I don't look for fancy graphics or clever design, I just look for a certain feel - the joy of sailing - and I got that feeling here.
WELL DONE and KEEP ON SAILING

I’m in the process of purchasing Flair 2 (MG335). After my offer was accepted I did a little research on-line & soon uncovered what a successful racer she’d been under your command.
I hope under our ownership we can do her justice around the cans.
If you have the time, any boat handling tips will be gratefully received.

Great site Jammy Jim! Check our J2/4 site out.
From Eddie on Friday 5th December 2003
What can I say, but thank you, to you and your crew for a most wonderful and exhilarating day on the Flair IV.
Although the day did not set off as I expected, having reported to the wrong Harbour Masters Office, I eventually navigated (see I have sea in my blood already) my way to the correct Harbours Masters Office, looking for you, only to be told 'that's them sailing out of port'. Well you can envision my disappointment, and language.
However I am a quick-witted sort of chap, and in vain tried to solicit a lift on any passing boat, including the Harbour Masters launch, only to be disappointed, and told to get off of the jetty.
Any how, all was not lost, as my guest, Matthew was on board, and managed to telephone me and coordinate a pickup point in my original port of call.
You can imagine my delight to see you all in the 'Kier, Building with Flair' colours and to be piped on board! ...............or was it hissing?!
But unlike Kevin we enjoyed very good weather. I also see that we came third and have won the series.
Once again, thank you, your crew, and fellow guests, for your thoughtfulness to my guest and I, for a great day.
I very much hope to see you next year.
Have a happy Christmas and prosperous New Year for 2004.
From Kevin Bryne on Tuesday 25th November 2003
Well, I set off in the dark and rain on Sunday and returned home in the dark and rain. In between I managed to arrive at the wrong pick-up point, park miles from the correct pick up point, lose my guest somewhere between the club house and the car park and got very wet indeed. Arriving at the wrong yacht club was my fault entirely, I have checked my emails and Graham did send me directions to Port Hamble way back but I obviously blanked those in favour of Warsash!
Anyway if I gave you the impression that I was wet, cold and hacked off that's because I was. No seriously, it was a privilege to be part of a very successful, happy and accomplished crew, who together with your tactical nous and their skilful teamwork yet again blew away the opposition.
James asked me who came 2nd and 3rd and I said I had no idea because there was no one else in sight. I have since looked up the results on the web site.
I would also like to thank you and your crew for once again making my guest feel very welcome and at home (although I admit that it was difficult to determine at times). I am sure Kim enjoyed the experience if not the weather.
From Mark Allen on Tuesday 18th November 2003
Hello Jim, I said I would have a look at the site. Very impressive, now if only I can get Portman to shell out for team building

A message for my cyber friend and Flair IV crew member LostBoySaint.
The boat looks good and I would enjoy a ride in her I am sure.
I miss the Solent over here in the French Alps.
From Christian Kargl on Thursday 3rd July 2003
Congratulation to your success in the IRC Class 2 race! I'm just preparing our e40 "LA LUNA" for a 1.000 mile race from Croatia to Turkey.
Any trimm hints you can give us?
All the best from Vienna,
From Lucie Dunster - Maxwell Stewart on Friday 16th May 2003
What can I say Jim, we had the best time on FlairIV the girls had a fantastic weekend. The weather wasn't great, but that didn't stop us. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensley, Jackie and Rob were excellent and we can't wait to do it again!
From Francine Vella on Monday 12th May 2003
Just had a brilliant time sailing. Jackie was so patient - a boat full of women with very little sailing experience/knowledge - shame the weather didnt hold out but it was fun and a fantastic experience !
From Kevin Byrne on Tuesday 15th April 2003
Just a note to thank Jim and his crew for a fabulous race last Sunday.
Brian was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Jim is obviously a very experienced and cunning skipper and his crew a dedicated and loyal bunch -- thankyou for the way you accepted a couple of novices and made us feel part of a winning team!
I think Brian is sold on the benefits of sailing as a team building exercise, it remains to be seen wether he can convince colleagues at Tesco's
A most enjoyable experience.
