Currently under restoration in Guernsey and owned by Gerry Pols is TOLSTAR now known as MISS SPEEDBIRD, this one off UIM Class 2 boat was built to a Colin Mudie design by Tolcraft in Poole in 1967 and was entered by Ian Toll in the 67 race…in those days she had a 310 hp Mercruiser in her 21′ hull and it was hoped to attain 50knots. She was later raced with her cabin (as Tolstar was a flat deck) under the name MISS SPEEDBIRD by a BOAC pilot Bob Attwood.

Gerry was gutted when he was unable to bring her over in August but has promised that the 2012 Rally will see her back in the Solent after many years to join in the fun…
