Additional Information: Catch was designed for the late John Allenby by Philippe Briand who had designed the incredibly successful Compte de Flandes, twice winner of the Quarter Ton Cup. John raced Catch on the South Coast and some years ago she moved to the Lake District, where she has continued to race. The revival of the QTC prompted Darren Marsden to find this famous boat and he returned it to the Solent in time for the QTC in 2006. Catch was sold to Guy Pronier head of the QT fleet in France in 2008 and was renamed Catch Me only to return to the Solent in 2012 and revert back to her original name.
