No, this isn't the 'Viking' that is sitting on the LBT front verandah, but rather the yacht that is being restored by Stephan Vogel (see pic below).  Stefan writes:

'The Viking has made it safely to her next destination at Barrys shipyard in Goodwood.  While I am pondering on what to do with the Boat and whether to restore her to a plain historic boat or more like a cruising yacht as she was used after retiring from the active racing duty I'd like to invite everyone who has help me and the Viking along the way. Please find attached a flier  ( for the Thank You BBQ held on Friday April 15 at the Wooden Boat Centre.   It's a small token of appreciation for all the support, emotional, and actual help I received from all of you and many more I don't have email from. The biggest Thank You of course to Adrian and Betty who have entrusted me with this endevour in the first place.  Please feel free to pass on to people who may have helped or may be interested in helping in the future.  I am providing some meat, veggies and salad. BYO drinks.  For numbers and getting the right amount of food, I would appreciate an RSVP.  More important than the RSVP is that you can make it to the BBQ.  I look forward to seeing everyone soon'
