The Heavy Metal shot I think was 1995, but not sure where though. Ian sold the boat to an Italian guy after the Europeans in Rimini that year from memory.

Laurence, that pic is definitely 1995, the boat next to Heavy Metal was Steve Hoare's Hayloft which in 1994 was in 4 Litre then reverted back to 2 litre in 1995, i can only see 1 engine so must be 95.

Potential races where it could have been. Falmouth, Torquay or Eastbourne.

Thanks for the update, my thought was Glamorous or Glorious Gosport as well.
