Leopard had a wooden mast in those days. She was one of the Royal Naval College training yachts and there were at least two others in the race. She developed a rather severe leak in the stern gland during the storm and we retired - hence the unfinished business that we completed in Berrimilla in 2005.
Thanks to David Carne for the photo. I'm going down to Falmouth to see her after we finish this one - respects must be paid.
