FROM "THE DAILY SAIL.COM" 2014, extract:

Where are they now?
Help us locate Whitbread boats of the past...


Sayula 2 (winner) - Swan 65 Fine story. Still owned by Ramon Carlin and cruised around Mexico
Adventure - Nicholson 55 from 'Longy' 14/7/10: "...seen out in Hawaii mid 1980s, owned by Arapoff. Might still be out there. New name, don't remember." From Ben Peter (23/7/10): Was used as a joint Service training vessel sailing from HMS Dolphin in the late 90s. From John Spottiswood 10/8/10: Adventurer was given by the JSSC to the Russian Navy a few year back I understand
Grand Louis - 60ft staysail schoner
Guia - Georgio Falck 45ft sloop From Andrew Troup (2/10/12): This was the first of a succession of at least four owned by Italian steel magnate Giorgio Falck. Guia (the original Sparkman and Stephens RTW boat) is in good condition, as shown here. She has been racing under the same ownership since 1998 on the Med Classic circuit, and is currently listed for sale. Guia III did not make it to a Whitbread, having sunk mid-Atlantic after being hit by multiple whales while being skippered in a race by an erstwhile acquaintance of mine, Jérôme Poncet, who told the amusing anecdote of waking to a boat chock full of Italians stampeding to and fro, shouting "Balena, Balena !!!"
Kriter - Auzepy-Brenneur 68  Spent 17 years unloved and untouched in Newport, RI before returning to French ownership and a full restoration program.
Great Britain II - 77ft Alan Gurney design. Competed in first five Whitbreads: 1981 United Friendly, 1985 Norsk Data GB, 1989 With Integrity. John Burnie writes (11/7/10): Saw this yacht in Horta in June this year as we passed through. She is now in private ownership and called Whitbread Heritage. Read more about her here. From Mark Watkins (15/7/10): I was in fact on Whitbread Heritage (formerly GBII) on the delivery trip from Antigua to Lymington via Horta back in May / June. The boat has been in private ownership for many years now, the current owner having had it for approximately 12 years. She spent Xmas in the Canaries then went over to the Caribbean in January until May. She’ll be in the Solent for the next few months (Cowes I think) & will be doing corporate hospitality for Cowes Week this year. I think the plan is to then head out to the Med for the Winter & beyond that I’m not sure!
Second Life - Roddie Ainslie's Ocean 71  Roddy Ainslie writes: "Second life was used as a sort of poor mans charter boat for a year or two after the 73-74 race then finally sold to an American who spent a fair amount on the interior, some new sails etc and then the new owner cruised her around the Med for a while. She was later seen moored in Chesaspeake Bay. The next time I heard of her was some years later, it was rumoured that she had been sold by the American Government having been caught drug running. Then about five years ago I understand she sank in the Caribbean having taken on a lot of water very suddenly, Fortunately no one was hurt."

CS & RB - 50ft ketch

- McCurdy & Rhodes 65 From Monte Clark, Stevensville, Montana 12/1/11: I owned this boat  from around 1999 to 2001. I found her in Sausalito California. A Frenchman had purchased her at a government auction I believe. She had been confiscated by the US government for running drugs is how the story goes. I am not positive about this information. The Frenchman had been living on her for some years in Sausalito. After he died, the family put the boat up for sale. I saw it and purchased it. I had the boat brought up the coast to Seattle Washington. I worked on it a bit there and sailed it very little. I sold it to a Californian who I assume brought it back to California. Not sure of its current location. I have attached two digital files. If you or anyone else is interested I have more pictures of her that I can scan and send. I am so glad you are helping to track down these beautiful pieces of history. Back when boats were beautiful.

The hull is painted grey but you can see Royal Blue livery below. I’m no racing yacht expert but the hull seems to be the right size and with two large wheels and twin wrenches for lifting sails appears to have a racing heritage.
