Comment from Facebook 2021, Keith, "I'm familiar with this boat having sailed her in the late 70's, in the Bristol Channel. The owner George Robins fitted a brand new bukh engine. He also changed the mast, which I believe came from a Sigma 33. She sailed extremely well and she is a development from Stephen Jones first half tonner called Tumbleholme"

1998 "Owned by a group in North Kent in the late '90s.  Photo is of the boat sailing in Ramsgate Week 1998." Info and picture from Tim Laws

2010 Aout: "Not much is more painful that looking at what the IOR rule did to boats - especially under the water. Stephen Jones drew some particularly tortured shapes, and this one is no exception. We love the text for the ad...."this piece of yachting history, a Steve Jones designed racing yacht, built to represent England in the 1974 World Half Ton Cup. An opportunity not to be missed." Thanks to anarchist Bobby. (from Sailing Anarchy)
