Cathy Stephenson and Karen Beer November 1973950 viewsThis was taken in the week I left the island. I last saw Karen in 1980 when she was running a pub in West Wynch. Her family went back to St Athan and her family is still in the area. Mr Beer, a great sailor, passed away a few years ago. Cathy's family moved to St Columb Minor near Newquay; both her parents have passed away.fifla1973
