Raced in Sayonara Cup in Sydney 1928, restored in Melbourne 1997, competes regularly in CYAA Victorian series.


1997 – Dave Golding – Her restoration involved complete replacement of all ribs plus new keel floors and deck beams of Iroko / Tasmanian Celery top. All fastenings and keel bolts were replaced, and exotic rigging added to save weight aloft. No expense has been spared to maintain her in the custom she deserves.
