I think some of us were around then (not me I hasten to add.....)

This is a few years before I was born, but some really interesting info there Andy. The main thing that strikes me is how virtually all the fleets are located in a fairly small geographical area. I guess it was a lot more difficult to trawl up and down the country with no mototrways and a Morris Minor as a tow car. There are some good boat names there too. I believe "Sredni Vashtar" is a reference to some crazy story about a small bvoy who starts his own religion by worshipping a ferret which he keeps in his garden shed. I suppose it was the 60's right enough.
