“Passion X”
David and Elaine Edmiston.
Passion X at Woolwich Marina Mainsail hoisted for the first time 24/02/2017.

David is not only Commodore of Greenwich Flying Squadron but also a tough competitor. We have raced against David & Elaine’s Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 “Passion” since we have owned G-whizz, both in GFS Twilights, where we are both in Blue division and for a season in the RANSA Winter Wednesday series. Passion has been the boat that we liked to benchmark ourselves against, beating Passion on the water brought considerable pleasure to us. Somehow we feel sure that this feeling is reciprocated.

David has been building a DiDi 40 CR in his back yard “Passion X”, not a task many would contemplate. The process of this build is now almost complete with the new boat almost ready for racing. Passion X is 40 feet and will compete in different divisions to us, I will miss racing against David and his crew.The few times that we have beaten him have been cause for much celebration, we are generally satisfied if we still have them in sight as they cross the finish line. Good luck David with Passion X playing with the really big boys in Black division.

The other Passion flying one of here colourful bits.

A visit to Passion’s excellent blog at passion.org.au. is highly recommended.
