From Captain William Howe: "I have attached a photo I took of the racing yacht ALFA ROMEO as it was being hoisted onto m/v BELUGA FRATERNITY by Seven Star Yacht Transport for transport from St Thomas, VI to Gibraltar. ALFA ROMEO was one of four sailing yachts and five motor yachts on this trans Atlantic voyage. ALFA ROMEO is owned and skippered by Neville Crichton, designed by Reichel/Pugh and is 90’ long with a 135’ mast. She has a canting keel, steering canard and rudder."
