"Afloat" 2021: "Jimmy Macke sailed her enthusiastically for 14 years, including Cork and Bangor Weeks, a Round Ireland Race and four Round Isle of Man races. And he says of a return trip from Cork when he thought the predicted persistent 40-knot south-westerly was too good to miss for a fast passage home up the west coast; "It was the best sail of my life - she was doing 14 knots".

looked at Twenty Twenty a few years ago when she was ashore in poolbeg yard
. It wouldn’t take to much to her back racing again the engine might be
a take out and bin job apart from that she would be alright."

July "Afloat", Restorer of MGRS 34 'Twenty Twenty' Has Round Ireland Race Ambition, by Betty Armstrong, extracts:
"... Rex Robinson, the new owner, has trusted the restoration to Kevin O'Neill in his repair shed at Kirkistown in County Down and by the end of September, this three-quarter tonner will be in Dun Laoghaire sailing out of the National Yacht Club... Rex had stopped sailing about twenty years ago while his children were growing up. Sadly, he lost his wife Debbie late last year. He felt that if he had a boat and started sailing again, he could use it for fundraising for Lung Cancer Research. He will be setting up a Go Fund Me page with the aim of raising 10,000 euros for that charity and plans to focus on the next Round Ireland Race.
The name will be changed to Debbie R and the paintwork to shades of purple, which was Debbie's favourite colour. The mast and rigging will be replaced by Masts and Rigging of Duleek and a new bigger engine and up to date electronics installed. Rex looks on this venture enthusiastically "Having the boat restored allows me to give the boat a new lease of life while honouring my wife's memory"...."
