    No3 - Lost with 2 crew.

    The beautiful second Morning Cloud was renamed Opposition, and spent many years on the Clyde.

    Sounds like she may have returned south recently https://www.britishclassicyachtclub....pposition.html

    I sailed on 2, 3 and 4 out of Cowes from time time as spare crew, and deliveries. I was skippering a sister ship about two hours behind Cloud on the return trip from Burnham week in 1974, and we chickened out around North Foreland and returned to Burnham, to hear the dreadful news.


    The first Cloud, an S&S 34 production boat, was very rapid. The engine under the saloon table helped the rating greatly.

    Lallows built two wooden boats for Mr Heath, and a couple for my then owner. Mahogany and varnish, and immaculately maintained; most beautiful of their time and genre.
    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Opposition looked a gorgeous boat. She was moored, I think for one season, in Tayvallich Bay I think in the early 1970s. I don't know who owned her at the time.
    Here she is at Tarbert, Loch Fyne:


    Edit: Must have been mid-late 1970s, from the article at your link.

    Opposition regularly turns up in Cowes during the classic week in the summer.

    That's much later than the mid to late 70s. Is that not an X Yacht off her stern?

    I think Morning Cloud II also had some Huisman built near sisters in alloy with a modified deck layout - the Huisman 41. David Scott Cowper's Ocean Bound was one.

    That’s right. Ocean Bound was completed from a bare hull by Whisstocks, and for at least the last 15 years has been sitting in a field just adjacent to the Bredfield turn off from the A12 just north of Woodbridge, with her mast in the racks in the lower “meadow” at Fox’s.
