Hot on the heels of the news of HYDROSONIC SPECIAL being found in Italy, comes news of yet another Cowes Torquay boat which is already receiving a major rebuild, that boat is the Cox and Haswell, Christchurch Yachts, “Pegasus” no 128, which raced in ‘65 and ‘66 taking the Concours Trophy for owner Mr A Jacobs. She was replaced in 67 by the slightly larger but Perkins powered Pegasus this time in a Navy and white livery as opposed to the original all white, from the same builders.
New owner David Heffer will be sending details of her restoration for the Webster.
New Member Ian Swinney has brought to the club a famous Aronow boat none other than MALTESE MAGNUM TWIN and is now hunting for any details and information which would assist in its rebuild. Please contact Ian through the club or through the Boatmad forum where he contributes as Delta28.
The Earls Court Show was according to the organisers a success and the dates for next year already given, for your diaries November 25th to 29th and after the beautiful Hunt designed Humdrum’s appearance this year bringing in an endless flow of compliments it will be good to have some equally amazing craft there next year which I am already working on!!

The club logo has undergone a minor redesign and new ones will be available in the new year.
I know it is still a long way off but planning for the 50th Anniversary of the Cowes Torquay, is due to start. Owners of craft who participated in the race from 1961 to 1991 should please register with us their intent to display or demonstrate their steed preferably in original livery with race no, after all the way this year has sped by it gives you 20 months to prepare.
