I never travelled in the infamous bus, but do remember it arriving at various meetings across the Midlands and the north. When the smoke from the exhaust had disappeared out would tumble what seemed like a 52 seater full of people, sailing gear and bits of boat.

The shellcocks sailed 3004 I think which was called Los Angeles, remember that had a rotating needlespar which had to be pinned to make it legal, I know Debbie Jarvis sailed 3003 when it was called the Liberator in about 83/4
12's are for life not just for christmas.
