Now the memories start rolling back........

 

I used to have every Y&Y dating back to the early 70's but sadly they all got dumped in a move a few years back. Shame really but they were taking up a lot of room.

What a great thread this is.

Does anyone have a copy of Elvstrom's book (the one I read at least a dozen times from cover to cover when I was at school and should have been doing less interesting things) - if so can they post up a picture of his Trapez?  There's a great picture of it sailing just off close hauled (on startboard) in a decidedly fresh breeze.

Ovi (RIP) always had a packet of tabs with him on the water for before/after/in between race moments.
