FLASH - Prototype MGHS30 - Half Ton Yacht - IOR

I took this picture in 1983 at Glasson Dock Marina of Flash which is a one off prototype for the new production yacht called the MGHS30 Half Ton racing yacht ( IOR ) built by MG Yachts. The yacht was raced in the Winter Months at Blackpool and Fleetwood Yacht Club on the River Wyre for many years. They had a fleet of Half Ton and Three Quarter yachts. The River is very tidal and the yachts were berthed on wooden jetties which dried out on every tide. In the picture FLASH is showing its original paint job. Flash won the 1984 UK Half Ton trails and came second in the 1984 Half Ton World Championship held at Troon.
Where is this yacht now ?
Is she still racing ?
