The TBA sails again!

I saw Johan on the dock yesterday and commented on his now quite rare TBA jersey, he was to be seen later sailing out of the Hout Bay Harbour.

Ariete sailing toward the Hout Bay Harbour on her way the bay.

This is a Fred Bingham design that Johan built himself from strip plank, its a great traditional style boat and sails really well.

We have at least three TBA members on the HBYC marina, time to do a TBA Revival Regatta!

How hard can this be?


My idea is to recognise the hey days when we had yachts join in from all local yacht clubs in the  Western Cape, being held over an Easter Weekend it was also possible for the Cruisers passing through to join in. Easter 2013 will be the date to remember!

I require one member (or more) from each South African Yacht Club as support and my contact with your club for this venture, names please!
