Velgia was the last Vega to be imported to the UK. She is a fine example of the Mark III Vega with her new mid-red canvas work (Di's handywork). She is based at Haslar Marina, Portsmouth and can often be seen sailing around The Solent. Owners, Dave Earl and Pete Byers, are well known faces at Haslar Marina and can often be found in the bar of Minnie Mouse 3 (Haslar Marina Clubhouse). Velgia takes part in the annual Round Island Race where she always gives a good account of herself against the other Vega entries. She now sports new sails and with her sponsored mainsail (picture of a tap, Dave Earl is a plumber!) she can be seen at quite a distance.
