She was built for Howard back in the 80's and was quite the boat in 4 litre at the time - won the 4 litre Europeans if I remember correctly.

I navigated (which is very rare) for Howard in the boat in the Round the Island a few years ago. Had a good trip round although we were a bit under-propped. Had some fun around the Solent loop when it chopped as well. Won our class and didn't get a trophy!

Yes, you remember correctly!

Wasn't that Europeans a series championship? - i.e travelling round Europe over several events? - Ciao & Jon F would approve!
