Her first owner was Sir Kenneth Norman Rudd. Until 1969 Angelique regularly took part in the Solent regattas off the South of England, including races that are part of yachting history, including the Fastnet Race in 1961 and 1963.
In 1969 she was sold to Sir Peter Laurent Hunt, a member of the Royal Cruising Club; he had a considerable impact on the life of Angelique: after two seasons preparation Sir Peter and a companion set sail on a round-the-world voyage that was completed in 1993.
