Known Owners
Dave Chisholm reports: "Original name "Snow White" collected by Wolverstone Hall School with F887 from Hamble, 12 April, where she stayed for just about ever. c1980 perhaps renamed "Sabrina". Found in a field in 2001 and restored to Mark IV layout by Dave Chisholm in time for Hamble Champs 2002 as the first Mk IV after the prototype (Forewood Thinking F3023) to be competed - although 11 pounds over weight!
