Update on OPUS

It's been quite a while since I featured and indeed have seen yacht Opus on the river, so it was quire a surprise to get the following email and pictures from Derek relating to the 1971 Fastnet.

"A friend and I crewed on Opus for some time in the early 70s.  The owner, Maj. John Dennistoun, told us he had bought it from Brian Cooke soon after the transatlantic race.
She took part in 1970 Cowes Week and in 1971 was a participant in the 1971 Fastnet Race.
Opus was not particularly fast but always felt very safe even in bad weather. Both owner and crew were not that experienced so feeling safe was a high priority!"

Thanks Derek for some fascinating historical documents.
