The Commodore chats to my folks
The event was again the Easter TBA meeting at the V&A Waterfront, by now the tide had risen and I had moved Ocean Cloud across from Quay Four. The boats in front are Kalahari Sands, a ferro Peter Strong design ( i think) with Brat of Dunkirk moored next to her. Brat is said to now be on the hard in Port Elizabeth?
Thats Pat Fraser on the left having a Castle beer and a chat with my dad and mother, note they all have TBA tee shirts on.
Pat Fraser was a founder member of the Traditional Boat Association, it was he and Robbin off Pinta who thrashed out the final wording of our constitution, Pat also came up with the burgee design for the TBA.
The boat on the left is Tara, now named Squire as one owner said Tara was an Indian name?
Its a Hollman & Pye design I think.
