Saw the craigslist listing, I'm surprised it is in the states. General Farrant's old Trifle is one famous boat in England where it was the boat to beat for years. I'm surprised nobody from Golden Oldies has snagged this one.

Join Golden Oldies if you haven't already, this group based in France has the mssion purpose of saving historical multihull racers, very helpful and friendly.

Look up the Brit A.Y.R.S. web site and go through back issues of the journal from the day.

Also in the UK look up Scott Brown Multihulls and get onto the forum archives, I think it is called the multihull.com .There is a Kelsall section there.

Look up old race accounts from the day, they were well covered and should led you to more connections.

Have fun! I'm sure Derek would answer questions.

Rscxx I have sailed Trifle in the Mobjack bay of Gloucester VA. I think it was about 2 years ago. I may have some information. Please email me. You should be able to through my profile. Congratulations. I think she is a worthy boat. Regards, Mark
