That is fantastic news just read up on face book about the old girl back in British Waters.

Hopefully she will be in Torquay for the CTC weekend for all to see.

We (the BPRC), Have already accepted a most generous offer of a boat (Ex race boat) for the re-start at Torquay !

VAC would make a great publicity visitor to Torquay for the race day though.
Crowds would hopefully pay to look over it, as we were all lucky enough to do (foc) at Cowes, just after she set the record.
