    Ok, will give it a go.

    If you could advise the UFO 34's racing in 1977 that would be appreciated.

    with the help of the rorc results (thanks youan) I am fairly sure the two missing UFO 34's are Cosmic Dancer II and
    Quixote. If anyone knows how these two yachts went in the 1979 Fastnet would appreciate the info (both listed as RETIRED).

    For sure Cosmic and Quixote are 2 Ufo, Quixote was third on the 1987 Azab race

    I just stumbled across this thread so thought I'd register for the forum and post what I know...

    Phil Eyre's Fiorinda was one of the UFO 34s in the '79 Fastnet.
    I'm pretty sure it was the last Fastnet entry from our club (Ribble Cruising Club).

    Phil built the boat himself from a Colvic moulding, and had quite a bit of success round the Irish Sea in the late seventies.

    IIRC his tactic was to lie ahull during the worst of the storm and then retired to an Irish harbour.

    The boat was quite recognisable at the time as she had one large winch, centrally mounted aft of the cockpit, for the genoa sheets. Dark blue topsides.

    She was sold mid-eighties and I've not heard of her since.
