Classic yacht Coral racing in Antigua 2012

This is a boat I know quite well, built to last nat as long as she did, I guess the removal of her lead keel for the war effort may have helped her survive.

 Photgrapher unknown.

Seen here racing just weeks back in the Antigua Classic Yacht Fleet Race, she certainally looks great. Coral will be about 110 years old now?

Restored here in Cape Town,by Stremple Marine in Woodstock, I was tasked with the supply of the deck plys, teak to the decks and cap rails, also the oregon pine to her spars.
