This C-T Race veteran from 1962 sadly caught fire off Lymington last weekend, & is pictured in the Daily Echo (Southampton), of Thursday, 12th August.
I have spoken with Paul, who tells me that the fire was in the port side turbo’ unit.
The cabin is luckly undamaged, but the cockpit & windscreen certainly are.
No harm to the crew at all, & the boat is currently out of the water at Lymington Yacht Haven.
I am sure that we all commiserate with Paul, & hope that he persuades his insurers to accept his claim to enable repairs to be put in hand.
GOOD NEWS ….after major surgery the famous Fairy HERE and NOW …is back in service…..
