    Hi. As owners of “Boambillee” we are very pleased and flattered to see our yacht on your register of Classic Sailboats. “Boambillee” continues to be actively campaigned, and for the summer of 2014/2015 is currently second in the aggregate of the Classic Yacht Association summer series sailed on Port Phillip Bay in Victoria.
    “Boambillee” is also on the register of the Australian National Maritime Museum (Australian Register of Historic Vessels – ARHV) – full details of her early sailing career and details of her construction are provided in the description of the yacht.
    Thank you for promoting the Classic Sailboats of the world.
    (PS. Chris Chapman died some years ago. The yacht is now jointly owned by Michael Rhodes and myself, George Fisscher.)
