Comment from Facebook (2024), Stephen Pile "My Dad bought her in early 80s and she was kept in Dun Laoghaire. We cruised her along West coast of France in Summer '83. She had a yellow sistership ( Puffin.....) from Wales we raced against in ISORA."

"It was with mixed emotions that we watched the HYC Marina team lift the late Brian Murphy's wooden sloop Karena for the last time. Brian was a hugely committed member of HYC serving as Rear Commodore in 2013 and he is sadly missed by the sailing community. We are pleased to say that Karena has now passed into new ownership with the intent to restore her to her former glory. We look forward to seeing the rejuvenated Karena coming back to visit after the work on it is complete, no doubt providing an opportunity to reminisce about Brian."
