    I've only just come across your post so if you're still interested I can give you a bit more info. Not really sure when but probably in the early 80's, we took the Norton Queen and the Wilton Queen from Falmouth to La Corruna on a delivery run. We were crewed fully with locals from Falmouth apart from the skippers, I can't remember which one I was on but I do remember Billy Brettell was the skipper. I spent many nights on the bridge with him and learned a lot from a top skipper.
