"She was bought by a family who kept her in Island Harbour on the river Medina on the Isle of Wight for a time. The family lived on board and then went off on an extended cruise which I thought could have been an around the world trip. This was the last I heard of her, maybe they only got as far as southern France."

2014 Infromations from Website "Touch Too was built as an Admirals cup contender in 1977 by a person called Mr Applebee from Barking in Essex & named "Charlatan V", from here on there is a gap where she was owned by a family who lived aboard. After which in 1990 she was delivered to the South of France from Littlehampton possibly for a Mr Sutherland. In 1992 she was bought back from "La Rague" to Gosport where some repairs were made after which she was sold. The new owner was Dr Liebmann who we think kept her until 2002 when she was sold to a partnership Niell & Higham who raced her from 2002 to 2004 when a mishap (while practicing for Cork week races) left her dismasted with structural damage. She sat in a shed in Crosshaven until 2009 when she was auctioned then bought back to Bradwell in Essex where we bought her."
