Note from Haydn received 15.01.08 :
I am the current owner of australian 5.5 "Crest". [...] Crest was designed by Bill Luders and built by Lars Halvorsen and sons boatbuilders in sydney australia. She was launched on the 15th of january 1967 with original sail number of AUS-22, this is still her sail number. Crest was raced immediately by Carl Halvorsen (the builder) in Australian gold cup series also world champs in Sandham, Sweden in 1969 and sailed in world champs by HRH Crown Prince Harald of Norway in Sydney 1970. I have some good history of Crest and other Australian 5's (newspaper articles, books etc.) that were given to me by Mr. Halvorsen.
