Seafly 260 – Gadfly

Seafly 260 – Gadfly was built by Harold Lang and owned by Peter and Daphne Fullagar of Canberra Yacht Club. This Seafly was five times the winning boat in the Australian National Championships: 1969, 1972 (tie), 1973, 1978 and 1982. To his surprise Peter Fullagar came across Seafly 260 in around 2016 in a boatyard at his local Sea Scouts hall!
