Clare added to the pink star list, December 2014
Clare* is in the post World War II Lloyd's Registers as Norah II. Only in the last one published, in 1980, is she renamed Clare. Like several other of the boats built by Alfred Lockhart her design is not acknowledged to be Harrison Butler, which may explain why she's not on any of the lists handed on to me by the Association. I'd love to locate obtain photographs of her to verify her authenticity, although her sail number of Z24 rather suggests one past owner, at least, was well aware that she is a Zyklon.
Paul Leinthall-Cowman has a list of forty Zs but no record of Norah II/Clare*. He commented, "If she is an early Z, up to number 26, then she would have originally been screw fastened and so may not have survived".
