Just received, an email from Chris Oldfield who lives in South Yarra, Australia who tells me:
'This is a big day for me! I have just spoken to the guy who now owns the QT boat 'Foxbat' that I had built in Melbourne, Australia for 1978. Foxboat was designed by Prof Peter Joubert and was loosely on the style of Magic Bus. I raced her in Melbourne as a QT in the IOR fleet. In 1982 I moved to Hobart and raced her with the JOG's. In recent years, I lost touch but now she has a new owner in Hobart who is 12 months into a re-build programme to bring her back to her original spec - a most wonderful boat. I am so delighted to see the QT's back again, the most fun racing I ever had!'
