Looking for people that knew Fiona Gore / Lady Arran

Hello,

I am looking to get in touch with anyone who knew Fiona / Lady A....

In particular Roger Trigg or anyone else that was close to her.

This is for a project I am working on and I would be incredibly grateful for any help...

All the best..

Jon-paul

Hi Jon-Paul
A friend of mine bought her old Wellcraft Nova 25XL back in the early 80s.
Unfortunately, he is no longer with us.
She had just bought a new Revenger 25, which I believe she named after her two nieces
We raced her old boat for several years against her, in cruiser class, under the number P45.
I will try and dig out a photo of us racing her old boat.
Hope this helps
David.

Thank you for the reply, I would love to know what she was like to race with, her attitude to competition, her character?

I imagine those were exciting times
