2015 Pictures from One Ton Class Facebook,

2017 February seen on Australian Racing list: owner: Roy Brough, "Once More Dear Friends was the first yacht built by John McConaghy, to a design of Ed Dubois for Peter Kurts. As to her racing pedigree OMDF represented Australia at the 1983 Admirals Cup and completed thirteen Hobarts coming second twice. Although a cruising vessel now, she did make the journey from Newcastle to Geelong for the Scandia Regatta in 2006 to once more participate in an arena she knows only too well."

2022 Septembre, from Facebook, "Victoria Point in Brisbane. Just off Thompsons Beach"

"Yes she is the real OMDF. Has been converted to a masthead cruising boat. Coach house has been lengthened."
