“Talking Sailing” From My Archives. Formula One Lives Up to Her Looks


























by Richard Crockett

Random searches through old magazines in my archives turned up the Holiday 23 yesterday, and today the Formula 1.

It’s hard to believe that the Formula 1 has been around for over 50 years now, with boats still sailing and racing in the Gauteng area and on the Vaal Dam. They were also active in the old Crystic Week regattas.

The 1985 review shared today and written by Alex Stone, refers to her as a big dinghy that had not fully reached her potential.

Sadly my photo archives don’t have a Formula 1, not yet anyway, as I still have lots of material to scan and digitise, so no doubt they will appear in time.
