This very distinctive & well known Quarter Tonner, Runaway Bus, was built in 1977 for Mike Richardson, the owner of Seahorse Sails. Built to the same lines as the winner of the 1976 Quarter Ton Cup at Corpus Christi, she was designed by Paul Whiting & in 2006 she was fully re-built by David Heritage in Cowes with new structure & deck, new rig, keel, rudder & systems which left her looking as new. She is still in excellent condition & remains very competitive having won the Jersery Regatta in 2015, come 2nd in the IRC Small Boat Regatta in 2014, 3rd in the Poole Regatta in both 2016 & 2014 as well as 2nd in class & 4th overall in 2014 Round the Island Race. She comes very well equipped with Tak-Tik Wireless instruments & a comprehensive sail wardrobe including her famous spinnaker emblazoned with a printed London Bus, all of which is complemented by her gleaming red hull & white decks. Runaway Bus is a very attractive & competitive racer that certainly turns heads & will make her new owner very proud. She is currently lying Southampton & available for viewings
