1987 Admiral Cup Yachts names unknown

Do you know the 2 Admiral Cup yachts picture here ??? both await shipping back to there country having completed the 1987 Fastnet race.
I think the yacht to the Left with the Dark blue hull is SIDEWINDER - owned by Randy Short and designed by Reichel-Pugh The yacht was 45ft LOA and Skippered during the 1987 Admirals Cup by John Bertrand as part of the team from the USA.
The yacht to the Right next to the pontoon may be the other USA team member Blue Yankee owned by R Towse. This yacht was a Judel / Vrolijk design 43ft LOA.

In front of them is a wooden yacht not part of the Admirals Cup but sailed in the 1987 Fastnet race looks like it's called muskateer
