One of the friendliest people ever to come into racing, albeit for a short time.

Phil Middleton 'Bad to the Bone', Excalibur 27 built under licence in Italy. His navigator was his very young son Phil Jr.

Now you are taxing my rapidly failing memory. There was some sort of what I believed to be Japanese writing which translated to spear (nope, that's Assagai) or ????

Don't remember which is really frustrating since I had the boat on brokerage and spoke with the original owner (whose name I also don't recall) on numerous occasions.
