Panic Major - Ocean racing yacht

Panic Major racing yacht pictured here in Ocean Village Southampton 1980's. Do you know anything about this yacht, who designed it ?????
Where is this yacht now ?
Is she still racing ?


  1. According to Ellen MacArthur's "Taking on the World" (p.41), Panic Major was designed and built by Robert Nickerson.

  2. I was part of the build team - we built her in a duck shed in Market Rasen, lincs, then took her out on to the Binks off Grimsby to put her through her grind.

  3. She was not a 40' but a 60 footer.
