Ziska was a long way behind the winners, who completed the race in four days and four hours in a modern performance boat, but came 22nd out of 35 starters, taking 16 days to complete the 750-mile race.
Ziska was built in Arnside in the Crossfield Brothers’ Boatyard on Church Hill, according to her owners, along the lines of a traditional Morecambe Bay prawner, and since the early 1970s, she has sailed around North America, sometimes being a home for various owners for several years.
