E-mail me mr.p@lineone.net nearer the time and if I am available we can sort out out a date to give you a ride out on Emma if you would like.

By the way the info on Ocelot on your club website is wrong, Ocelot was the UK boat not the Danish boat she was hastily prepared using Lady Helmsman's Wing rig after it became apparent that Lady Helmsman was structurally shot! 3 years of defending the cup had taken there toll

Ocelot was not a great success the hulls being from an older unsuccessful Reg White C-Class from a few years earlier, the hulls lacked rocker and she was extremely slow to tack. Ocelot lost the cup to the Danish boat Opus

I refuse to tip toe gently through life only to arrive safely at death

One of the original Hellcats from 1961/62 still in perfect condition, pictured taken with Reg White at the helm in Aug 2005.  Boat kept at Cushendall Co. Antrim N.I. Great boat to sail.

Peter Emmerson, who used to sail Tornado's in the UK, met up with Reg after the Spitfire Europeans in Cork in 2005, and travelled North to meet up with John McLaughlin and sail the Hellcat. Below is part of an article I wrote for Afloat Magazine in 2004.

In 1962, two years before the formation of the Irish Catamaran Association (As the IMA was known up to 1984), the McLaughlin family from Cushendall went to the London Boat Show and bought a Hellcat catamaran. This magnificent 25ft by 14ft catamaran, sail no. UK 3, built by Reg White, is a sistership of the C Class catamaran which won the “Little America’s Cup” for the UK in 1961. This year, John McLaughlin came out and raced the immaculate Hellcat with the latest modern catamaran designs at the Irish Multihull Association’s Northern Championship, hosted by Cushendall Sailing and Boating Club on the 29th & 30th May. Amazingly, 42 years later, most of the modern catamarans racing were also built by the same Reg White, of White Formula.

The condition and location of the old Brit C cats seems as confusing as ever. 

L helmsman. NMMC. NOT SAILED in many years

Hellcat 1, 2, 3. One has gone to Canada. I think this is 1. There's another in Northern Ireland, and the owner contacted me only for me to lose his details

Ocelot is still around, USA I think

E Hamilton was at Calshot, again, I have lost details of the owner

I want to see what kind of interest there is in some of these boats coming to Falmouth in sept

Hi Norman

Got your email and you have probably seen the pictures of UK3.  The boat is still as original right down to the sheets and pulleys, sails etc.  

I have it housed in a special boat house which forms the lower area of our home.  Amazing piece of kit, a few years ago we had Reg White visit and sailed the boat with us.  He could not believe the condition and really enjoyed the day.

If you have any particular questions please let me know.

Ocelot was stored at Maidenhead SC until recently. I believe it may be somewhere around the Solent now.

Dear Sir,
As I see on a forum, Yachts & Yachting, Emma Hamilton C-Class catamaran is in your Club.
I am writing a book : on the history of the International Catamaran Challenge trophy,  
“Little America's Cup“ history (in English and French) for the next even in Lac Leman in 2015 (last in Falmouth sept. 2013). I research the lines, deck and sail plans of all the boats.
As in my others books, I redraw all the contenders.
Is it possible to get a copy of the lines, deck and sail plan of  the C-Class Emma Hamilton1965  from the owner.
The book will be published this year, so I am in a hurry to find all the documents.
Best regards
François Chevalier
