'Finally we have settled on the names.  In Ken Tregonning’s history of the Club he records that in 1924 Jack Norris, one of the great pre-war champions of WA Yachting, bought four 16 foot skiffs from Sydney to sail at FBYC. They were named Atalanta, Shadow, Ripple and Dotsie. We felt the first two were maybe a bit grand for a couple of rowing skiffs and so have settled on Ripple and Dotsie.'
