Brian Wright kindly provided us with this certificate he found whilst going through a box his mother had kept. FA Bri-Ant was actually built in 1962 but it was not until 1964 that there was an association.

WA Aquatic monthly August 1962 - the local sailing magazine of the time.

Launching of Bri-Ant with Brian Wright in front and his older brother Gordon who was sailing cherubs at the time.

You will note there is no sail number. It was just a FA as there was no association until 1964. The boat (albeit a modified version of it) is in storage at the WA Maritime Museum.Thank-you to Brian for providing this information.
