    I “En seglares äventyr” av Jörnstedt skrivs det om Fastnet om man vill läsa ur en svensk perspektiv. F ö överlägset bästa seglingsbok jag läst, finns väl numer endast att låna på närmaste Bibblo. (Ska önska mig den senaste vid nästa tillfälle där han skriver om Peter Norlin)

    Hi Warwick,

    Peter G found this one for the article.

    As far as I know there wasn’t much photography going on during this race :-)

    Beken of Cowes has shots of Condor.

    Regards, Chris.

    I am maybe wrong but something says me that Condor hit a pacific Island owned by Marlon Brando. Am I totally out in the blue or did that happen to her?

    Bob Bell the original owner of Condor still owns her and she is currently in Phuket.
    Condor is also on Facebook.

    Just for info; The Condor on the pic above is not the Condor in Fastnet -79. The one above is a newer (or less old). Think the first one was called just “Condor” and the second “Condor of Bermuda”. Not shure.

    A wonderful read I did hear the story first hand from a crew member the late Andy Burnell .It will soon be 25 years since his tragic passing and reading this was somewhat emotional – I still miss him.
