    I've had a hunt around the Internet and cannot find any references to Carronade being a UFO 34

    Another way of asking is whether anyone can recognise any of the yachts listed below as UFO 34"s?


    FASTNET 1979 – CLASS IV
    Is your class assumption right. I know of a High Tension 36 who definitelky sailed in that race and isnt in your list. Near a UFO 34 in size, so maybe the UFOs are in more than one class

    Could be, however the other 4 UFO 34's I have identified were in class IV.

    Ballydonna, a High Tension 36, was in class III
