Putney to Calais 1970

My dad raced in the 1970 Putney to Calais race as well as many others around that time. His name is Ted and his boat was 'The Hustler'. I am hoping to get in touch with people who have any archive pictures of memorabilia. He has a copy of the Telegraph newspaper covering the race but not much more. He came 2nd in the race and unfortunately his trophy was stolen. I would like to get another one made up as close as possible to the original for his birthday.

I very much look forward to hearing from hearing back from anyone.

Many thanks

That's great, thank you very much. I'm going to search and see if there is any footage out there. I have found the 1968 and later Putney to Calais races but not the 1970 one. May get lucky! Thanks again.
