Cannot tell if she is “My Glory”, sailed Morning Glory from 1979 , just after Fastnet(my brother was the one that brought Camargue back to our home port Milford Haven), Who ever has her, they have THE most seaworthy beast on their hands who loves to be pointed and the only yacht I’ve sailed that can point a spinnaker. Who owns t’awd lass now and how is she? XXXXX
The Morning Glory you are referring to is still in Milford Haven. She is currently owned by a guy called a Richard Scourfield and is based at Lawrenny. You must have sailed her around the time that John Davies from Herbrandston owned her and Alec King helmed her. My father owned Camargue, bought her just after the 1979 Fastnet.
I might have some photos of Glory, certainly have some of Camargue.
I think these pictures are of a different Morning Glory from the Milford Boat (Which I now own).
Ours is featured and photographed in Ted Heath’s book about Morning Cloud. We have the pale blue coachroof as seen in the pictures in the book. I have sent updated details to the S&S34 Association in Australia.
My first ever trip on a yacht was on morning glory to Corck week in 1986 with John Davis Martian Sykes George Clark I crewed for many years after around Britain raley won the three legs we took part in. Got court in a storm on the way back from the Sillys. Many happy memories met many caracters none bigger than Jhon Davies who truly loved the boat RIP X
Great to hear so many memories of Morning Glory, my dad was George Clark and I know he loved this boat, next his own of course Atlanta Girl. I remember him riding a stern wave of a 40′ yacht during a race in the Haven in Morning G. like it was a dinghy.
