Notes

5.5 K-7 - unique in construction - yesterday by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Charles Perry reports:
Unique was quite an unusual boat. I believe that she was the first to have a reverse transom and note the large jib. She went fast to windward but not so good downwind!

Charles Perry reports: "...Yes, dad ordered the boat..."
Pictures will follow.
UK yacht in 1952 Olympics - 17.12.2013 by Matias Johansson
Unique, designed and built in Norway, was the UK yacht in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. She was crewed by Perry, S., Dillon, D. and Cochran-Patrick, N.

Till Rors (1952/16, p. 12), a Swedish yachting magazine, writes that Unique was "a jolly yacht with a very original appearance". Too bad we don't have a photo remaining to see how a jolly yacht looks like!
5.5 K-7 "Unique" - Original or Alias - 22.01.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Has she been a fomer Norwegian boat, imported to the UK or did R.S.G. Perry order her from Westermoens?
