I bought N1798 in October 1968 when I moved to Nottingham to study Civil Engineering.  My tutor, Bob Truswell, another N12 sailer, considered sailing more important than study and signed me up to Trent Valley SC in my first tutorial and Sweet Fanny followed.  I bought her from John Ryall who had considerably modernised her with rolled side decks, Aluminium centre board replaced with a permali ply board and painted with 2 part epoxy varnish which was very tough.  Out of guilt I repainted after 4 years and wondered why?  She was a very good flat water boat and reasonably competitive but not an open meeting winner.  However, at the Middle Nene autumn meeting I was fairly quick but David East and Ewan Stamp in their Paper Darts were even faster.  I then ordered Dolly Blotter, 2679, and sold Sweet Fanny to Richard Colley, also of Trent Valley.
