Terry Sprake and Morning's End, an S&S 34, have covered 30,000 miles together. He bought her in 1987, the year he gave up full-time work to become a consultant. He was 64.
The 30,000 miles have not been clocked up pottering round the Solent or creek crawling up the East Coast. They include a full-blooded North Atlantic circuit of 10,000 miles, taking in Venezuela and Bermuda. On the return leg, non-stop Bermuda to Falmouth, Morning's End was swept by a succession of gales.
Took part in the 2010 AGM in Barcelona. After they returned they wrote:
It was great catching up with you all again. Thanks for the info updates. This is a photo of a new boat built in our area. My brother has met the owner and hopefully he will be a new S&S member soon. We saw the boat in the shed before she was launched and she is very impressive.
