Olds British Cigarette 36'

Anyone can tell me if the Realite Charger Cigarette 36' that raced in CTC in 1980-81 with Frank Wyatt was the former I Like It Too?
Anyone have some pics of Realite Charger?

This image below show one Cigarette? of Rosalin Wright during the World Championships in 1982.
Ros Wright have had the Cigarette 36' former Dry Martini,Yellowdrama,Crown Of Crucis,Colt Sapporo,called John Player Special that sponsored it too.
I don't see the lenght of this boat. 32'? 36'?
Was the former 36' modified?

You sure that's not a Pantera 28?

One raced over here under various names, with triple mercs.

It now belongs to forum member 'silly git' (AKA Dave Simpson)

Don't think it's Cig either. The bow and fairing look distinctly Formula like.

Ben is on the money - it´s a formula hull. I don´t know why the 36 cigarette that they were preparing wasn´t used in the end. It was looking great at the yard in Poole (David Hagan´s yard if I remember rightly). Although this press photo shows the cig in the background it was clearly premature!

Well done guys!

You have disappeared all my doubts about that Formula outboard.
Confirm you that the Cig 36' JPS not race never?
Then what it become again?

Anyone about pics of Realite Charger?

The old JPS boat was raced for may years it was originally called Dry Martini, then it became Yellowdrama 11, then it was sold to Nick Cripps who raced it under a number of various names, think he sold it then to Ros Nott. Its currently down on the Poole area, has the Dry Martini graphics as original but its also had a cabin and large cockpit added.
