I logged in thinking this was about Drum - the maxi that lost its keel. Trying to remember which pop start owned it.

He did indeed. Undeterred, after the keel fell off, he had it repaired and did the 85/86 Whitbread Race with Skip Novak as skipper, finishing mid fleet.

The yacht ended up being bought by Sir Arnold Clark who subsequently crashed it into a nuclear submarine off the Mull of Kintyre (which Drum also survived).

swmbo vaguely knew Le Bon before I met her. She was sharing a flat in Knightsbridge with Yasmin Parvaneh in the mid 80s when they were both fashion models with Models One/Elite. This was when Le Bon was courting Yasmin.
