For the record. Because of the 2004 reference wherein Treloar Roses introduced this rose in 1965, it seems McGredy bred this rose in 1964. Alec Rose participated in the second single-handed transatlantic race, placing fourth across the line in his 36 foot cutter Lively Lady in 1964. He was knighted after his 1968 single-handed around the world journey.
