From Humphrey website: About fifteen of these boats were built from the mould of Seren Wib, the most successful being Michael Peacock’s Juno which was campaigned with the sort of dedication more normally reserved for the grand prix arena. Then as now it is hard with a production boat to get on level terms with a grand prix one-off, but Mike Peacock certainly came close. In Cowes Week in 1984, for example, Juno returned two firsts, one second and one third.
Among other 34s to prosper were the Biggs family’s Checkmate, scoring second in Class 3 in the 1984 Round the Island Race, first in Celtic Week in 1985, first in class and second overall in the RORC Irish Sea Race in 1988, and in the same year first in Division A2 in the Irish Sea Offshore Association season’s points.
Then we have Chris Bonnar’s Bateleur, winner of the prestigious Tomatin Scottish Series in 1985, and Peter Cyriax’s Smokey Bear, winner of Class 2 in the 1984 Round the Island Race, with another MG34, Aladdin Sane, second in Class 2. Further west, Yellow Bird III won the 1986 Plymouth Offshore championships.

Xepha GBR 4566 MGRS 34 1985, 2011 Based Medway, Kent, 2014 Picture and information are from www.mgrs34.info,"Is sailing on the Medway and the East Coast, we race with the Medway fleets most Sundays geting to finish up the order slightly more as the years go by… Just had a Survey suggests she’s in good order, if in need of a little TLC which I suppose is right, she’s untidy below, this winter I’ve been sorting the electrics, nearly finished, rewired the mast lights Tri, Anchor, Steaming and Luff changing to LEDs, and new wire that is not corroded, The head lining is still down in most of the saloon with temporary LEDs and wires providing trails for workability. Got a few jobs to do this summer; will probably take her out of the water for a couple weeks before the Medway Regatta. Fixing happens on Saturday racing on Sunday means there’s not too many tasks can be done during the season but I try. Nearly finished… well nearly, Found as soon as I’d finished up the top of the mast, the Stowe wind has gone terminally wrong so has to be replaced. So now going to get a Raymarine system that will talk to the other parts…" Simon O, 2016 2 juillet, Round Around Island: 9h50', 398e/739 IRSC Overall, Simon O'Loughlin, Medway Cruiser Autumn Series, on the entrants list;
