Hi

I bet that was a fantastic experience

What year was that then? I expect you were in your youth then and took full advantage of Thailands hospitality!

Where abouts in Thailand is it held?

Did you win!!

Cheers

Steve

[i]Hi

I bet that was a fantastic experience

What year was that then? I will tell you when you identify the yacht !!!

I expect you were in your youth, Not in my Youth - No!

Then took full advantage of Thailands hospitality! Yes, the organisers laid on sumptious free booze '

Where abouts in Thailand is it held? West and East coasts of the Southern part of Phuket Island

over 4 days.

Yes , It was (is Storm Vogel)

I believe it is somewhere in Italy. I think an Italian now owns her

The reason I didn't give the date, is because I couldn't remember. By this time neither

Bertie Reed nor Kees Bruynzeel were involved. StormVogel was at the time having major

repairs done Phuket (Boat Lagoon)

The sister boat was Voortrekker sailed by Kees Bruynzeel and Bertie Reed (Biltong)

I don't know what rules we raced under, I was only on board for local knowledge - have always been a cruiser rather than a racer.

Richard

PS

Steve, what was the name of the beautiful ?

Hi Richard

Were you on Storm Vogel when that photo was taken.

Was Storm Vogel the yacht used for the film "The Deep"

What year was that then? I will tell you when you identify the yacht !!! Think youll have to work out the year now

That "Beautiful"

Sorry I have no idea what her name was (is).

I was just leaving the berth to go to work and managed to get a quick picture of her.

I start my shift on Monday so I can ask around (Shes the type of yacht that people remember)

If I find out Ill let you know.

It was quite amusing thinking that the guy had spent all that money on such a fine yacht and then whilst visiting Dover the only berth which is available to him is alongside the dredger. He actually went ashore via his rib which is the only way to get into the main marina facilities.

Whilst on holiday a few years back in Holland we visited a small town of the Haringveldt which had a similar looking yacht on a boat builders quay. I presume they had just built it.

When my six numbers come up thats where I ll be heading

Anyway whilst up in London this weekend I came across this old lighter tug.m_DSCF2227.JPG

Ive found out a little bit about her and her career on the Thames semms very interesting perhaps someone could help us out.

Cheers

Steve

[QUOTE=norwestsailer;8461]Hi Richard

Were you on Storm Vogel when that photo was taken. No ways I guess that was in the early 70s This was a picture taken much later - leaving Phi Phi Island on a down leg of the race StormVogel__Phi_Phi_Thailand.jpg

Here is a timely addition, given Manor's post about 'cabin fever'.

What is the boat's name?

Where did she sail?

Can you name the legend who designed and sailed this craft.P1010395.JPG

Hi Auzzee

Gypsy Moth sailed into Plymouth Last month

It made it from your end without incident (havent heard any different) and is now gonna be with UKSA taking charterers out around the Solent.

Better to be out on the water than in dry dock next to Cutty Sark She may have melted after the fire if she were still there.

She certainly came a cropper in S Pacific if it wasnt Gypsy Moth I think she would still be there!!

Come on have a guess whats the name of the boat above.

Cheers

Steve

Hi

I have absolutely no idea who designed this.

All I can say is that as its got "Preserve The Pacific" on the sail (Headsail, Mainsail, Onlysail, Dontknowwhatsail)

The designer must have been from Australasia and then he must have had Toooo many tinnies!! and a headache

The name of the vessel is Mermaid (I thought mermaids were supposed to feminine and attractive this certainly isnt)

Did it sail very well?

Certainly a very different and unusual craft

Cheers

Steve

It is not of course, but it reminds me very much of SJÖAGG, a similar craft which, I believe, was lost in the North Atlantic. I could well be wrong on that though and would welcome any concrete information regarding her fate.

Aye,

Stephen

The little baby boat 'Mermaid' (form 'Yidaki' above) was the smallest yacht to be sailed from San Francisco to Osaka, Japan by Kenichi Hori in 1989. He made the journey to highlight the need for the environmental protection of our oceans.

Hori san, has sailed a variety of craft made from all manner of recycled materials, and sailed some totally solar powered boats around the world. He remains Japan's most famous modern day sailor.

He has the great good fortune to be sponsored by a BREWERY . Consequently his boats of the past decade or so have all been called Suntory Mermaid (1-2-3-4 etc)

Read about Hori san here http://www.solarnavigator.net/kenichi_horie_voyages.htm

Steve, one of his boats was indeed made from recycled 'tinnies'

Cheers

David
