    She's been for sale with Berthon for a couple of years now, who also had Martella listed for a while but it looks like she has been sold. Thanks for putting the link up about Galicia.

    Do you know if this is the Farr Tokio that sailed in the race or the Swarbrick Tokio that was only used pre race?No idea...The Swarbrick Tokio had an odd keel I think, fin went forwards?? The boat in Chuso's picture is the Farr boat, the Swarbrick's in Helsinki. I read something recently which said that the original Galicia 93 is in Gaeta, Italy but has been ashore for a number of years.

    This is great info, is it Yamaha 1 or 2? Any chance of a couple of new pictures? It would be Yamaha 2, which was the training boat for America's Challenge. Yamaha 1's now called Cuba Libre and seems to do the Med - Caribbean regatta circuit.

    New Zealand Endeavour is in Italy and Fisher & Paykel is in Lanzarote, being run quite successfully as a charter yacht. From the Daily Sail list it looks like NZI Enterprise is in Split and has been sitting on the hard for over 20 years. Outward Bound apparently is in a shed n Tauranga
