Richard Fairey at the helm of Flica racing at Cowes in 1932

Built according to the Second International Rule Flica was the product of a partnership between Charles Nicholson, the prolific designer, and Sir Richard Fairey, who had extensive ‘access to vast industrial resources and all the technical sophistication of the aviation industry’.

‘Not only was Flica the best of the 12’s but Fairey was also our best helmsman’, Yachting World.

‘In 1932 Fairey won 35 flags in 39 races and 1933 49 flags in 55 races’.   In 1934 Fairey sold Flica to Hugh Goodson.
